I am a rather shy person. I did not have a best friend since high school until I was about 38, it takes me a long time to warm up to people and I just don't do well with people I don't know. I'm fine at work, grocery store etc. it's the intimate relationships I pull back from.
So, my son's new girlfriend invited us to a graduation reception. Her family is super nice but I was feeling so out of place. My son even said if I could come up with an excuse I could leave.
I had half a glass of wine and was able to relax a little. I also hung out at the young adult table which also really helped. Eventually her parents came over to talk to me...it was a lot of effort!
Anyway i ate too much, had a glass of wine and went home and had a light dinner followed by cookies.
I was just so wiped out that my will power was gone. I am so amazed by how at ease some people are in this kind of situation!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My daughter was a little fatigued as well and when we got home we just read books until bedtime.
Anyway, just coming clean about my day off my life eating plan. I don;t feel guilty, just surprised how much I needed a glass of wine and food to keep me from focusing on my discomfort. And how wine leads to more food later.
How do you all handle situations where you are very uncomfortable?
