Very Mild CP - why is controlling nerves so difficult? Can it be helped/stopped?
This might have a lot to do with anxiety/panic attacks etc... but, any advice/suggestions would be appreciated.
Why is it that when in the presence of 2 or more people the following happens:
- hands/fingers tense. Can't lift a full glass of water without strangling it to death!
- any fine motor movement cannot be done with ease or eloquence
- body tenses, walking is stiff, hands become clenched and do no flow freely along at the sides
- trembling occurs
Basically there is a lack of control. However, when alone, above symptoms are next to none, with the exception that when calm lifting things like a full glass seems "heavy."
I understand exercise strengthen is recommended here, but can it be a case of "mind over matter" as well? How can one approach this problem for successful results?
You are probably tense in the presence of other people. Some individuals do have a phobia to perform in front of others or do not like being around people. This can precipitate an anxiety attack. You need to consult a counselor and probably learn some mind behavior techniques to overcome this anxiety. This helps to divert the mind away from the thought that you are tense in public and you learn to focus on the task and not the people around you. Take care!
