I can do this, I can do this…

This Thursday I speak at a press conference for Sexual Violence Awareness Month. I know this is the right thing to do, and I know I want to do this. So why do I feel like I want to hyperventilate?

I usually write my words in cyberspace or sing them behind the safety of music and notes. This time I will speak…and I’m freaked. Somehow, there’s a part of me that’s more panicked about “betraying the secret” of our family.

Well, it’s no secret…not like it used to be…and not by me.

But still, it’s sending parts of me into a panic…parts of me that I shall listen to, and embrace and reassure everything will be all right.

I’m crazy.
