Some people who have social anxiety fear writing in front of other people. You might fear that others will notice your hand shaking as you write. This fear can affect your daily life, from signing checks and credit card receipts to filling out forms. Has this been a problem for you? How do you cope?

Shaky Hands

Shaking hands is one of the biggest symptoms of anxiety I have. It's not just a problem when writing, but also when I greet someone or I am handing something to someone. When the situation allows, I often place my hands in my pockets to hide the trembling.

Unavoidable

For me, shaking hands is constant and unavoidable :(
