    A party is taking place for my nephew's 5 th birthday tomorrow in a community centre. It was his birthday on Tuesday but as he was in school the party is tomorrow.

    I get very anxious in big crowds, I get very shaky, Can hardly speak and feel very dizzy.
    On his christening party I walked into the pub where the party was, I was shaking like a leaf in front of everybody, I walked out and drove home a few minutes after going in and I was so anxious


    My brother is not with the kids mum anymore so it will be her family there, his family and our family. but we have quite a small family and my Brother will probably notice If I'm not there but I would sooner not go then go and be stood there shaking like a leaf, unable to talk.
    It is only me and my brother, we have no other siblings



    Is it fair if I don't go tomorrow, I did see my nephew on his actual birthday after all

    I personally see zero problem with you not going. You clearly will struggle and have valid reasons for not wanting to go, and let's be honest it's unlikely your nephew will be all that bothered. He'll be busy having fun with his friends doing whatever it is 5 years olds do.

    Thank you

    I'm not sure if many people are aware I have anxiety, some have seen the side of me that is anxious and shaky, such as at previous parties e.t.c.

    If I don't go to the party, a lot of people who are not aware of how anxious I can feel will probably not understand why I am not there.

    I said the exact same thing to my mother, that my nephew is 5 and he will be busy playing with other kids nad going on the bouncy castle or whatever will be there tomorrow. She will probably keep nagging me to go but I think I have made a decision and that is not to go to the party tomorrow. I am 24, I maske my own choices.

    Besides, it was his actual birthday on Tuesday so if I don't go tomorrow it is not like I did not see him on his birthday is it
