Joe’s experience

In the moment I was introduced, I felt a rush of adrenaline in my body. I thought it would ease, seconds later I felt my breath increase, I commenced walking up to the lectern, as I stood in front of the lectern, I looked up, 400 people were looking toward me. My mouth felt dry and my throat felt as if it had narrowed. I was thinking to myself, how am I going to get through this, I felt like I wanted to run.  

For a brief moment, I closed my eyes and took an inward breath followed by a long outward breath.
