Does anybody know of alternative ways to get over an extremely irrational fear of public speaking/presenting?

My boss told me about this presentation in May 2003 (due Feb '04) and it has consumed me ever since. I like the job, but have seriously looked for other opportunities because of this. I have given some in the past, but this fear is way over the top and sends me into a fetal ball everytime I think about it. No matter how prepared I am, I know I will shut down and sprint out of the room. Traditional ways do not seem to help. Thanks for any comments.
