magine that you are stuck in a bubble that cannot be popped, no

the way you feel and why you feel that way. Similarly, people with

Martha from "A League of their Own"

Sex with Strangers I auditioned for
this documentary but apparently I
didn't have the "right physique"
that they were looking for. Ripped
and bulging just wasn't their cup of
tea I guess. Stop laughing. At Mad-
stone: 1:45, 3:45, 5:45, 7:45, 9:45
Sweet Home Alabama I really just
want to go home right now. Why
couldn't Reese Witherspoon do some-

"Anxiety disorders show up in late adoles-

Similarly, depression usually develops
between the ages of 15 and 19, making col-
lege a peak time for episodes to occur.
The media is starting to pick up on the per-
vasiveness of mental illness by glamorizing
these disorders and the people who suffer
from them. Films such as "Girl Interrupted"
and "A Beautiful Mind" cast popular stars as
victims of mental illness and rumors that
Jennifer Lopez has depression now seem
almost like common knowledge. But, this glit-
tery attention does not allow audiences affect-
ed with mental disorders to actually relate to
the media depictions.
"I think its great that the media is display-
ing awareness, but mental illness is a very del-
icate topic," said Cara Sandelands,
Residential College senior and general man-
ager of Mentality, a mental illness awareness
organization at the University.
"Awareness is a key to understanding, but
they way in which mental illness is conveyed
is so important. We need to show how it real-
ly is," Sandelands added.
THE REALITY OF ANXIETY DISORDERS
Many doctors now agree that anxiety disor-
ders are as common as depression, if not more
"Almost all college students experience
anxiety, and most recognize that they are anx-
ious. But when anxiety occurs often, many
students don't even think that they have a dis-
order," Himle said.
College students may develop one of a vari-
ety of anxiety disorders, such as Obsessive
Compulsive Disorder and specific phobias.
The most prevalent of these disorders is
"Nearly 13 percent of the general popula-
tion develop Social.Phobia at some point in
their life," said Himle.
Cara Sandelands, an RC senior, describes a panic attack as fe
A key trait of people with Social Phobia is
the intense fear that others will detect their
imperfections. To counter this, people avoid
situations in which they are exposed to scruti-
ny. Stepping into a large lecture hall may be a
frightful experience and those with Social
Phobia may suffer academically.
"Social Phobia includes the fear of making
speeches, giving presentations and participat-
ing in group projects and class discussions,"
explained Himle. "People may develop avoid-
ance and stop going to class altogether."
