Just askin'.....

Have you ever been so scared of a situation, terrified of the result, that you are frozen?

I don't mean like if someone had a gun on you, or your life was in danger. I'm talking life overall.

What if something were so important to you, you were paralyzed with fear? You don't speak your mind. You can't be yourself. You're simply there.

Has that ever happened to you?

Yes, but then I just imagine that they're eating like pigs, while momentarily picking their nose, all while trying to talk at the same time and that usually takes care of things. : )

I've actually only stammered & sounded like an idiot with only 3 men. Kissinger was only one of them.

Tammi, I wrote that I cause I didn't want to start crying. You have to ask yourself: Can you live with the feeling or would you hate yourself if you became unfrozen.

If I could live with the results of getting through the fear I would. it is the reason the loss of my friends wasn't more devastating. We left nothing ever unsaid. they knew how much I lovd them.

Oh, hell yes.
Stepping into physical harm: not a problem. Embarrassed in public: bring it on.
Start thinking too hard about the future and I'm a mess....

Yes, in both my personal and professional life. Like a train wreck in suspended animation [maybe].

If you're there, I feel for you, but all you can do is keep going...

Only once - but it's *not* a good feeling.
