i have to give a presentation to a group of police officers in about
45 minutes. i am ordinarily not at all afraid of public speaking - it's actually a part of my job that i normally enjoy - but my anxiety is really high today. i'm dizzy, i feel my heart pounding already, and i'm trying to take deep breaths. i guess i just need some encouragement from people who understand.
i can do this...i can do this...i can do this!
