Hi, I haven't been here in awhile, but I have an upcoming presentation and I am getting seriously, seriously scared and panicked about it. Earlier this term I was put on the spot at a research meeting (separate from this class) and had a near panic reaction in front of everyone. That shook me up considerably regarding my confidence to come across un-anxious. It is this Friday and I am really really scared. I am a little surprised because I have had to do this kind of thing before and have never been quite so alarmed about it. Nothing regarding talking myself down is working. I'm getting more and more upset about and thinking about just abandoning the class even though it's the very last thing I have to do in the hardest class I've ever taken and all the work would be for nothing. I recently was in a bad car accident and it wasn't even 1/100 as scary as this is to me. What can I do to calm down and stop letting this anxiety build so I don't end up like I did earlier this term in the research meeting (which was looking totally anxious and incompetent)? It was so bad I decided to leave the research group after this term. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Is there a point where I just can't take this and should not do it? My proposal is done and ready to go, but I'm not.
