It gets better, but it takes a while! I was “supposedly” the only one who could play in my young married ward so I played in sacrament meeting and I totally understand where you are coming from. I had the same experiences of being nervous and messing up. I play in Relief Society now, 7 years later, and it is no big deal. I don’t even break a sweat and I usually play most of the right notes! 🙂 Keep it up and I hope that your pain eases up!!

Trust that I’m not lying when I say you do a great job and I know it’s not easy…It could be worse, if I had to play we would sing the same song for opening and closing….every Sunday!

It does get easier. And honestly what is the worst that can happen? They can ask you not to play again and then you can dance in the street. Says the professional pianist who completely bombed out on accompanying a student at their Christmas recital.

I wanted to know how you are feeling with the pregnancy and your other health issues.

Your post brought back memories of me playing the piano, rather pathetically, in our little branch in Lewiston. Unfortunately, my piano skills have improved little over the years.

Hey Mary! I’m a “pea,” and read your blog regularly.
Could you email me? I have questions about your Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. My 16yo dd has that, along with endometriosis. I’ve never run into anyone who even KNEW what PCS was. I won’t be offended if you don’t publish this comment. I just couldn’t find your email addy to send something privately.
