Need help--work presentation!!
I have an internship, which I just started, for a company this summer. I have had OCD for a long time and it's affected me a lot with public speaking these past couple of years. At the end of the summer (so in about 10 weeks) I have to give a big presentation, I was just informed, speaking alone to a group of about 25 co-workers and several representatives from the client I'll be working with all summer.
I have no idea how to approach this because I have severe phobia of public speaking. I get up there and start speaking, but my voice basically stops when I see all the people and I can't really speak for about a minute, then my voice is trembling the rest of the time, largely because I know everyone just saw me unable to speak from fear. I have awhile to fix this, over two months, but don't know how. I'd rather not tell my parents about the issue and the presentation is unavoidable. How can I best prepare myself for the presentation in these next two months using books, over-the-counter medication, or other techniques which I could perform on myself? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.
