Pray for me public speaking
« on: September 05, 2014, 08:27:17 pm »
Hi guys, not a huge thing in the scheme of things but...my family threw me under the bus, I mean, "nominated" me, to be a reader at a great-aunt's funeral service mass tomorrow.

I have an anxiety disorder that flares up into a raging fire of social anxiety when faced with public speaking.  The last time I had to speak in front of people at a group interview my knees almost gave out on me.

I know the people who were closest to her can't be expected to do the readings, though, and I know my own aunts can't because that's the exact side of the family the anxiety disorder COMES from, and my one uncle is already reading too.  And it's an honor to contribute, my great-aunt was a very warm lady as is her daughter and I always appreciated that.  

I'm just having kittens here, and haven't been in a church in years either.

So, if you can, say a prayer that I'm able to stay calm and read well and not mess up my great-aunt's funeral service!

You will not mess up your great-aunt's funeral service.  No matter what happens.  Prayers for your poise and peace of mind.  And I'm so sorry for your loss.

Senebty.

I have pretty terrible social anxiety disorder (I have to be medicated in order to attend university and... live... life), so I empathize with this.

Lots of prayers and good thoughts your way.

May Djehuty guide your words.  Sekhmet give you strength.  Khnum ease your anxiety. Nebt-het help you ease their grief.  Bast give you comfort.  Sobek-Ra bring you peace and calm.
