Hello, I was extremely shy as a child and didn't feel happy in my own skin at all. Aged 30 this feeling improved and I feel much better I myself generally, most days... However, there are situations which set my heart racing, sweating and fear, these are social situation. It is awful, I will even cause an argument to avoid having to go out and face a group of people I don't know. The thought terrified me and I find it difficult to talk to my husband about it.
In august he has a reunion with ex-army mates who I don't know and I am already beginning to worry! I would love to go for my husband's sake,but I simply don't know how to take control of my fear to allow me a "normal" night out with a group of people in a social setting. Do any of you have any experience or tips for this?
Thank you in advance.
