2 Diversity Role Paper Sweaty Palm and Nervous Habits Texas State University COMM 1310: Fundamentals of Human Characteristics Valerie Daniel 2 1). A complete description of your diversity role 2). Describe a typical day for you (where you go, who you see etc) 3). Describe where you work and what you do there (if no job, why?) 4). What things are difficult for you every day? 5). How do other people treat you? 6). What questions do people have about you? 7). What are your favorite things to do? 2 Sweaty Palms and Nervous Habits When I was 15 years old, my first therapist diagnosed me with social anxiety disorder. For years before that my parents would just excuse my irrational behavior around new people and situations by saying I was just shy. I don’t blame them for ignoring the problem; it isn’t unexpected of a child in her formative years to cry for whatever unknown reasons. As I aged, though, I became more aware of how my heart pounded and palms sweat each and every time I felt even the slightest bit uncomfortable when I was out of my comfort zone. And though I have learned to push through my invisible illness, my friends and family will always explain me best by saying “oh she’s just painfully shy” (Question 1). Web MD defines social anxiety disorder, or SAD, as an “excessive or unreasonable fear of social situations” (Goldberg, 2014). It’s not something most people can see and understand though. I’m always the last to introduce myself to the newcomers, taking every extra second to silently practice how to just say my name. Every voice crack and awkward smile haunts me. Every odd look and embarrassing situation pushes me to tears, days, sometimes weeks, later. If it wasn’t for my best friend, Jess, being by my side, Texas State would be the loneliest place on earth. (Question 4). It’s hard to make friends here on campus. The few that I have either are very similar to myself or very accepting and outgoing. In their presence I feel comfortable speaking and will go on for hours about the things I’ve observed in public. Jess often brings friends to us, rather than the other way around, and sometimes it takes me a while to achieve some degree of comfort. However most people, when they first meet me, take my silence offensively. I’ll often ask Jess if I did something wrong and she’ll understandingly respond by telling me that they think I am uptight or rude. Of course, I rarely have the courage to prove them wrong and miss out of quite the number of new relationships. I don’t mind much though. I’ve learned to accept who I am. (Question 5). Situations can be hard sometimes. Even if I have difficulty understanding a topic in class, I can rarely bring myself to ask about it. Visiting teachers can cause me a whole lot of stress and, 2 unfortunately, my grade can suffer greatly from it. In high school I had to learn how to study to the max and it’s carried into college. If I did need to contact a teacher, I’d often email them. It was always easier that way. Jess, my few friends and I will always make sure to get together for dinner. Sometimes it takes some coaxing to get me out of my room and there have been several times where my anxiety has made it near impossible. These are the times when Jess will question me about my anxiety. I’ll often explain to her how each new situation makes me feel overwhelmed. I tell her that my seemingly often bathroom breaks are just me trying to contain myself before I have a panic attack. She’s always been very understanding of my condition and I couldn’t ask for a better friend. (Question 6). My two favorite places to go are the Alkek library and this small corner at the top of the writing center. These places are generally silent and they really help me to escape the hustle and bustle of such a large campus. Other than my two or three classes as day, those are the main places I go. For someone who spends the majority of their time alone and silent, I’m always doing something. I get my homework and studying done quickly and spend the rest of the time writing. My goal is to finish my book by the time I graduate. With all the free time college has given me, I want to get a small on campus job. However, since having the courage to attend an interview is difficult, I’m having a hard time finding that job. One of my goals is to be able to be strong enough to talk to employer. I’ve never been able to handle a public job but I hope that one day I can. (Question 3). As I’ve grown older my, I have learned to live with SAD. Ever so slowly I’m working on getting over my fear of new environments. I hope to one day be able to lead a normal life where I am no longer deathly afraid of everything. With the help of my close friends, my family and the extremely accepting environment here at Texas State, I know that one day I’ll be able to go above and beyond all my goals. 2
