Word of the Day – collywobbles

butterflies_in_my_stomach_by_xximperfectionsToday’s word is collywobbles.  This is an informal word for nervousness.

I always have referred to this feeling as having ”butterflies”.  This analogy has always intrigued me. It’s like having this feeling of uneasiness that dissipates once you let it go to”fly away”. For instance, the effects of this Ataxia can be very nerve wracking.  But sometimes it’s just a matter of giving it a try.  Ya, no amount of “positive attitude” is going to get me to climb that mountain, but I can TRY that smaller one over there!
