So glad I found this place!

Hi, I'm from NY and have a great deal of difficulty in situations where I have to speak off the cuff. I am fine with public speaking when I have a prepared speech, but am terrified of the question and answer session afterward, or of any situation where I can't rehearse what I say beforehand.

I have a huge telephone phobia and will avoid speaking on the phone whenever possible. E-mail is a godsend. I would like to meet whoever invented e-mail and kiss his or her feet.

I know you have all read this sort of introduction hundreds of times before, so I will just say that I am glad to be here and will just shut up now and read what has been posted.

I totally have the phone thing as well, another reason why the internet is so amazing!

Everything happens for a reason

Hey Anna Baptist welcome.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

The title topic is probably the first thought we all had when we found this website. Welcome to SAS Anna Baptist.
