That nervousness is what you're aiming to eradicate through exposure therapy, so it makes sense that you have some.
Being exposed to that which you fear or fret over can be incredibly healthy if done properly. Once you see that you can go through it, you can face your fear with no physical harm and only the emotional harm that you are putting yourself through, you come to realize that it is simply self-established fear--you control it and you can make it disappear!
