Question by Metrakaba: i was offered an invitation to participate in a documentary on tv , do i say yes or no please read carefully?
i wrote a story over the internet about a skin condition that i have called vitiligo. It looks like a tv documentary producer ( the hulk hogan productions ) read it and sent me a message telling me that there a making a documentary for their “life chronicles ” series about people with vitiligo and their daily struggle and that i am invited to participate .Months before this happened i had sent a really long letter to the Tyra banks show making a topic suggestion for her show to talk about people with our condition but i never got a reply until this other guy contacted me , i wonder thats how he found me ? what do you think?
I personally do want to show up in the documentary but at the same time im scared to come off as a loser in front of national tv , because my story its not a pretty one .
You see im a 21 year old virgin who has never even gone to a date , i dont go out , practically a hermit with no job and no life and therefore my self-steem is not the best either . My shyness is another problem too , i had to drop a class in college because of my fear of speaking in front of a camera and people in general but at the same time im so exited and eager to scream to everyone behind the screen that we deserve an opportunity too , thats its not our fault we were born this way and inspire everyone else that may feel the same way but again im afraid that everyone is going to know about my personal business and make fun behind my back or gossip .The weird thing is i had a psychic friend that told me long b4 this , that i was going to be on tv and on magazines , i though she was pulling my leg or something but now i realize there could be a possibility of this coming true.The prons and cons are clear but still dont know what to choose , whats your advise should i go or not?

I’d say just go for it…you have nothing to lose. You may kill two birds with one stone (overcoming your fear of shyness and being able to talk in front of people.) Good luck & God bless!
