Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here. I have been struggling with anxiety disorder (social and general anxiety) for nearly 10 years now. Some days are better than others. Mother's Day is coming up, and my husband and I are taking out our parents for brunch. I have been working myself up over it for awhile now. Whenever there is an upcoming event or gathering, I feel like I can't breathe and my heart beats fast. I tell myself that I can't do this and all I want to do is sleep. But once I am in the social situation, I seem to be okay for the most part. Eating in public is another issue for me. If I'm just with my husband, I'm okay. But if I am around a table with other people, I freak out. Does anyone else feel the same way?

I don't like eating in restaurants esp when they are packed. I haven't ate in one for awhile now. If I do it isn't at a busy time. I esp hate those places when they sit me at a table in the middle of the freaking place. I rather sit in a booth in the corner.
