    I'm fighting my social anxiety and am going to my first social later today, here's part of the message I have received: "We have booked the function room at the
    *pub name* a day before Halloween and there will be fancy dress, a few games and a chance to get to know everyone better".

    I've thought about my costume so much that I haven't done anything. The real me wants to go as Walt *Image Related* tonight and then maybe again in a nightclub tomorrow, but the anxiety me wants to no go in fancy dress if at all. It's coming up with convincing stuff about "getting kicked out for indecency and **** like that, even though people enter nightclubs with blow up sex dolls and penis costumes ect..."

    Is it ok to wear this? Will I get kicked out/ Insert other probably irrational fear?
    Should I just make something else last minute?

    Did you manage to sort a costume in the end, and go to the social? Walt sounds like it would have been a great costume :yep:
