My performance anxiety keeps coming back- how do I make it go away?

+1 vote
I do everything I can to relax and be calm, but whenever I have to give a talk to my coworkers, my stage fright keeps coming back, and then I have to call in sick, not giving the talk. I fear my boss may fire me if I continue to call in sick. Why does it keep coming back, the stage fright?

You need gradual exposure therapy. The only way to make it go away is to face your fears. I have written a book, Anxiety Protocol, that shows you how to make performance anxiety go away.

In the meantime, you can consider visiting with your doctor for a prescription of a beta blocker, such as propranolol. Propranolol can be taken on an as-needed basis, right before your performance, to decrease your anxiety about performing in front of people.

If you prefer a natural alternative, then the natural anxiety supplement, KalmPro, may be helpful.
