I don’t know about you, but I am the queen of leaving events early (if I even choose to go to events).
My anxiety makes it extremely uncomfortable and difficult to be in social situations where I have to interact with multiple people at once, especially if they’re people I don’t know.
Sometimes I feel guilty and rude slipping out early, but the physical symptoms and the mental symptoms of anxiety together are enough to make me not care because the panic usually takes over.
For the most part, people that know me understand this, but it’s hard when I feel like I have to explain myself to strangers.
Do you ever feel this way at social events?
