    I've never liked parties or large groups of people in general. But my parents always ****ing force me to go. So tomorrow there's a party and I don't wan to go. But they are forcing me to go. When I see a large number of people I feel really uneasy, almost like I am out of breath and my heart's gonna stop. Plus it scares me.

    This is the first time I've ever heard of parents forcing their kids to go partying. This must be the new generation.

    Just don't go then, hang out a friend's house for the night.

    Well if it's a family thing you should probably go... I'm sure you can just sit in the corner and use your phone.

    You sound like you have social anxiety, so tell them that by making you go, they're putting you in situations that make it worse.
