Fear has taken over my life

I don't know what else to say. I can't do the basics such as giving a presentation at university, or applying for a part time job which involves working on a till. When I say I can't, I really can't. The last time there was a presentation, I told the teacher I couldn't do it. How am I going to survive?

Before I graduated high school, I had to do a presentation for my English class. I was nervous at first, but as soon as it was my time to up, I wasn't as nervous as before. Sure I was still nervous, but I didn't let it show. ( I have a pretty beast poker face. :P ) The presentation was over before I knew it.

When you have an problem or an obstacle in your way, sometimes its just best to feel the fear and do it anyway. You'll ultimately feel better in the end. Trust me.

Might want to try therapy or medication.

Fear is NOT real. The only place fear can exist is in our thoughts. It is the product of our imagination, causing us to be afraid of things that may NOT EXIST.
By the way, growing balls would help also.

If it's that severe, you should probably seek help.
There's nothing wrong with that.
