Warning; advice given is NOT politically correct!

"Dear Winifred; maybe you can help me; I have a paralyzing fear of public speaking.  If I find I'm expected to give a speech in front of a group of my colleagues (I'm an accountant), I literally get sick to my stomach with worry about it.  I know this is a common fear, but it's getting in the way of my just enjoying life; I need to be talked in off the ledge.  PLEASE help me!  Signed Terrified."

"Dear Terrified, well, you may as well jump because I hate to tell you this but this shit 'aint going away.  Not only are people watching and looking for any sign of weakness on your part, but they're judging you as a person.  You tell me; if they look up there and see you hemming and hawing, looking like a fire hydrant stuck open you're sweating so much, what are they going to think?  They'll be thinking, "This guy's weak, and folds like a cheap tent!"  I will recommend one thing you can try that I've heard works; when you're up there in front of everyone, picture yourself in your underwear.  See if that doesn't help.  Winifred."
