Going out to lunch with my DH and his work friends plus partners tomorrow. I haven't met any of them. Im so, so anxious about this.
Just wondering how do people cope with these kind of things? I'm trying to challenge my thoughts but it's been a long time since I've been out at all. I'm so anxious.
So, I might have a glass of wine before I go but I don't want to be tipsy. Alcohol will be provided there by the company. I might not have a glass of wine before I go but I don't want to be too nervous. I might not drink at all but don't want to be the only one. Nobody will talk to me. Everyone will talk to me but I'm not interesting what will I say. I will talk and look silly. Even worried I might be the only partner there even though I know others are invited.
Social anxiety sucks. This is a first world problem I know but I'm really getting worked up and might even cancel
Any tips or words of advice i can give to myself if I do go? I want to go but I don't want to feel like I've made an idiot out of myself iygwim
