Wish me luck gang!

Wish me luck gang!

I'm guest lecturing for a psychology professor's class this afternoon on Contraception and STIs (aka STDs). I've taught his and this class before, but not since I've been so aware of my cog fog issues 😬. Let's hope I don't lose my words or thoughts mid-sentence. And I'm bringing my cane to support me during the 90 minute lecture (I'm imagining that might grant me some pity and leeway 😳)

Why, oh why did I agree to do this...😬😬😬

  • You can do this erash, just take breaks when you need them. And yes, take the cane, then if you get a little fog raise it so they all see it and say, "Damn MS!"

    Wish I could be there to hear the information, I find most things medical fascinating.

  • You will rock this!

  • Best to you, you know your stuff. Have always impressed me! Just take a breath and go for it! You can do this.

  • If anyone can do this, YOU can. Go for it, proud of you, blessings Jimeka

  • You'll do great!!!!

  • Luck! You're going to be great, erash ! I'm continually amazed by your brilliance, intellect, and engaging stories of perseverance on our My MSAA Community here, so I'm sure you'll have the same effect on your students today.

  • Ah shucks johnMSAA

    You're too kind

  • Erash, it's Fancy1959. I am amazed at you once again. I truly could not think of anything worse to do than to lecture the lecture you are going to do today! I would wish you luck but I don't think you are going to need it because i know you'll be great!

  • You'll do great erash! It's info you know well and since you'be done this before, once you get started it will just flow. The cane is great idea and will give you a sense of security.

  • You are impressive, erash! "Break a Leg!"

  • Best of luck! You've got this! Let us know how it went.

  • Thank you Texandyroe

    It went very well 😊

  • I'm tickled pink it went well, but we all had great confidence in your abilities!

  • Honey, it sounds like you've got this!

    I think honesty goes a long way, too. I attended a lecture once by a well known doctor and was really excited to hear what he had to say. The farther he got into his presentation the "drunker" he acted and sounded. He was rapidly losing all of us. He stopped midsentence and apologized and explained that he had MS, was extremely tired and his brain fog was killing it. Once we understood, everyone was cheering him on and we not only learned a lot, but everyone enjoyed doing it. People are usually kind and generous to someone they know is really telling it like it is. He told me later he was afraid he would lose credibility if he let his audience know he had the same disease he was lecturing about. I told him that only made us know that he knew just how we felt.

    Good luck! But, I think you will breeze through and do just fine. Have fun with it and your audience will too. Hugs, Joyce

  • Thanks! joys-an21

    That's a great story!

    Fortunately it went well and I don't think there were any drunk moments 😊
