Are You Frightened of Public Speaking?
Most people who are afraid of public speaking avoid it at all costs. But once in a while, there's no way to get out of it.
I remember a required class in college - I forget the name of the class, but one of the requirements was giving a speech of sorts in front of the class about 3 times during the semester.
We had a deadline for "being ready" and then didn't know who would be called each time we went to class. As a result, I went to class every day with a cold lump in the pit of my stomach - terrified that that would be the day. I remember feeling like I could hardly breathe when I got to class.
I got through it, of course. And since then I've learned to speak in front of a group without the terror, but I wish I had known about Bach Flower Essences back in those days.

This Bach Flower Remedy treats all types of fears and allows you to face life's challenges with will-power and determination.
