I have a little problem thatís bothering me right now. I have started to have panic attacks when I do presentation (I go to collage so I have many presentations) and talk in front of people. I have never had this problem before, sure I got a little anxious but I could always go through it. The last one I had I just couldnít do it so I had to leave the room. It feels like I canít breath, swallow and I just get stuck. Because of the last episode I have focused on getting rid of the fear and I have read a lot and listen to audio-books etc.
The problem is just that every program takes a lot of time and I have a big presentation in two weeks. After I have read about it I am committed to do a whole program, because I now understand that I have had this sort of problems before but not understanding them, so I rely want them to go away. I will perform the whole program but I just wonder if there is anything that just could help me to perform in two weeks? On the program I am listening to, they say that I should not go faster then they recommend, and that I should face my fear but not until I have the skills to handle it, which makes me more anxious since I canít go through the whole program before the presentation, which means I will not have the skills to go through it.
Is there anyone that has an idea of what I can do to accomplish this? Iím not saying that I want a shortcut to not being anxious ever again. I understand that this is a long process. But I just want something that could help me to do this presentation and not panicking. Then I could go on with the rest.
