re: CBT Shame Attacking Exercises - Terrifying!!
I have decided to attend a Toastmaster Meeting tonight. Just the thought of going to a meeting where I don't know anyone is making me anxious.
I am reading David Burns book Panic Attack where in he advocates the Smile and Hello and the Self Disclosure (saying you are nervous). I will try both of them tonight.
As I am writing this post, I can feel the anxiety surge through me. Hope I have the courage to go through with it.
