the xmas and new year season can be difficult for anxiety and panic disorder sufferers with parties and various social and family obligations, IMO its far better to go than to invent an excuse and not go
even though going involves some discomfort, you always feel much better and like yourself more afterwards if you do go. yeah
 
as always valium type meds are helpful but be careful if also drinking or driving if an extra dose is taken

I agree Harry, I have an early x-mas lunch this weekend with my partner's family and I've been formulating "anything" all week to get out of being cheerful and "up" but in the end I know I'll have piece of mind at the end of the day that I tried with the people I love. And thanks for the Alfalfa tip. Great results..merry x-mas xxxxxxx :-)
