Public speaking is a fear of many; not just those with social anxiety disorder (SAD). However, those with SAD are more likely to experience severe anxiety before and during a public speaking engagement. Although some with the disorder will avoid public speaking altogether, others will suffer through the experience due to work or social obligations.
