Nervous as all get out

I'm nervous because I am helping someone do some research for an article on infant loss and miscarriage and infertility, and I'm praying it works out. It won't be out for awhile, and I have no idea if I'll even be in it, btw. It may end up it has nothing to do with me, just the issue.

In fact, I'm so nervous, I'm like a cat on a hot tin roof. I'm worried it won't work out well, I'm worried it will work out perfectly, I'm worried I'll look like an idiot, I'm worried I will end up harming an issue so close to my heart.

I'm worried about what will happen next!!!!!!!

The reporter is lovely and kind and smart, the paper is a good one, the cause is noble.

But I'm quivering like a bowl of Jell-o.



  1. You won't harm the cause because it is so close to your heart. I couldn't think of anyone better to research this stuff!

  2. Wow, how exciting! I can understand that you are nervous, but you'll be great. This issue is so important to you, and that will come across for sure. Best of luck! Can't wait to hear about it.

  3. Calmness at all times. A refrain in my house. To stem the jello quivers. I'm sure you've said all the "right" things.

  4. You are so awesome woman! I am happy that you are sharing your story with this writer, very brave of you. And remember courage only happens when you are afraid.

  5. That's exciting. It's scary to share your story. I never know if I should or shouldn't.

  6. Nerves can be a good thing - it will keep you cautious of what you say - and help you say it perfectly. You'll do just fine.
