 60 things that cause me massive amounts of anxiety

So many things can make me anxious, so anxious in fact that I find it very hard to deal with these different situations. Every single one of them can make me panic, sweat, experience nervous laughter, mumble and feel desperate to leave. It can be so bad, that I can practically feel everyone's eyes on me examining my every move and just waiting for me to screw up somehow. Do any of these sound familiar to you?
