When are my nerves going to calm down when I'm doing shows? I get so worked up before the show trying to pack up stuff and get everything I need, then getting there and setting up (my nerves are fried by then). I keep telling myself it's going to get better the more shows I do but it hasn't happened yet. I tend to loose my train of thought during the show and I feel like then I'm just rambling on and on about nothing. I have done 5 shows and I have one this evening for almost 30 people and I don't know if I'm coming or going half the time. Sometimes I think I need to rethink my decision about doing this, is it worth the state it puts me in?! And low and behold I seem to always get a cold before a show, so then I'm doped up on cold medicine to keep from coughing my head off, it's a no end situation. Ok so now I'm rambling again, sorry I just want to know if this gets easier or is it always this way before a show? Thanks for listening (or reading) my craziness!
