Tomorrow night is our annual Christmas party. I’m excited, nervous, happy, and anxious all at the same time. I know I’m stressed about it though because my normal aches and pain are amplified.

If I’m completely honest, I want to call off the party. Being around other people (outside my immediate family) makes me anxious and overwhelmed. It’s draining to be social, and the noises associated with parties can be quite overwhelming for someone with sensory sensitivities.
I’m thankful to have a husband that not only helps with cleaning, but also good with entertaining. He’s such a charmer, and others gravitate to him. He makes awkward situations less intense and more humorous. I know he’ll make the party more alive and take the pressure off me.
The party, I know, will be great and I’ll be happy about it. BUT, until then, I’ll be a ball of nerves.
