Christmas Party Hell

Recommended Posts

I'm currently at a Christmas party with my SO. His family seems so heartless and cold to me but I know that's just my perception. I'm so anxious here and I can't figure out how to self-soothe. There are 50 people here and my heart is racing and I want to go home and curl up in my bed and be a recluse. I don't know how to deal with this right now. I don't want to go home and hurt myself because I can't be at a party. :(

Okay, finally home and much better. Social situations make me super anxious and anxiety is a huge reason I SI. But it's over and I just got home and am going to take a long hot bath to calm down and self-soothe. Posting helped to distract me while I was there since my attention was focused on writing something.

Thanks fantod for your response. Was helpful to focus on my breathing and I hid in the bathroom. :)
