    Christmas party at work tomorrow...

    Oh, how I dread going. I'm fairly comfortable at work and get along with everyone, but because this is not part of my normal routine there, I am feeling nervous. We are just kind of having snack foods and exchanging secret santa gifts. I absolutely hate opening presents in front of people, I get really anxious. And I also fear that anyone receiving a gift from me will hate what I get them. Also, I didn't know what to bring in terms of food so I just got a fruit tray and I'm worried that it will be lousy. So yeah, I'm not looking forward to tomorrow. My anxiety is of course worse when I'm out of my routine, which means I'm out of my comfort zone.

    I'm sorry it's so rough. Just remember to breathe. It might end up being enjoyable. Let us know how it went.

    It was an informal sort of all day long thing. It went well, no one was hanging out in the breakroom, so it wasn't bad at all....though when I opened my gift, several people tried to watch but I managed to hide.

    Mine was just a lunch. Fortunately we had two additional people there this year - they had been hired during the year - giving me more people to talk to.

    You're lucky you have a Christmas party to go to. I wish I did.
