Well...the hubby and I have tickets for the Bob Dylan/Willie Neslon concert tonight.  We didn't buy the tickets or choose the seats but they are front row center.  There will be ten of us.  Most know about my fibromyalgia but none of them know about my anxiety.  I should be thinking of what a great time I could be having but instead I am focusing on how I am going to be trapped in a huge crowd of people.  It is at a football stadium.  I also have meniere's disease and have to wear a stupid noise blocking head phone because I am already 60% deaf in both ears and the loudness will kill of yet more of my hearing.  The tickets were bought as a gift and I am thankful for the generoisty of our friends. 
Two of the people going are physicans and I should feel safe but I don't.  I think I am going to embarrass myself by having to go to the car.
By the time you all read this I will probably be on route but just needed to vent a bit.  I am hoping this is just anticipatory fear and I will be fine.  I'm not worried about understanding what Bob Dylan is singing with the ear phones on...who can understand him anyway...LOL!

Good luck in dealing with the concert. I hope you're able to hang onto those positive feelings of gratitude to your friends and potential safety in being near doctors.

Please let us know how it went when you get a chance. I'm rooting for you!

Sending you good vibes and I hope your fears diminish as soon as the show starts and you are so into enjoying the show that you relax completely. 

I do understand your anticipatory anxiety.

Lots of hugs to you

Well, by now you're probably at the concert enjoying yourself. More than likely the concert has taken your mind off of your negative thoughts. I hope you had a good time! Let us know how it went!

Hoping you had a great time at the concert and that stinkin anxiety decided to take a walk elsewhere.
