Valentines DAy is coming up and my husband insists we go to dinner and maybe grad a drink or 2 at a bar afterwards. Well, Im STRESSING already.
For 1, I have always had issues eating in front of people. In elementary I would not eat but a couple bites at lunch because I hated the way I looked with a mouth full of food and had a fear of choking/vomiting.
I just cannot seem to relax.
2, I have to look hot on V-day, money is really tight right now so I cant get my hair done or clothes, anything to look nice and feel pretty and special
3, I have had this problem some time now with going to restaurants. I get VERY anxious getting ready to go. I refuse to go on the weekends or evenings when places are busier. I have only 2 restaurants I am comfortable with but MUST sit in the back off to the side where no one is really paying any attnetion. When I get there I am so nervous and sick to my stomach. I have to order a drink to calm down (sometimes it does the opposite and makes me feel worse) before I even eat.
Im NOT ok going ANY WHERE V-day, every where will be packed! I feel anxious just typing about it (hehe). What should I do?? Should I go? And wait for an hour for a table feeling like total CRAP? V-day is not just MY DAY so I feel kinda selfish not going anywhere but it freaks me out.
Anyone else have anxiety going out when its busy or to restaurants?? Please advise.
