Anxious in large crowds. They're everywhere.
BackstoryThis crowd anxiety is a hard thing to admit. Many times people I know (who don't feel this way) have a difficult time understanding and don't know what to do to help me feel comfortable. Sometimes I don't even know what to do. Part of me really wants to go sports events or concerts, but the thought of all those people leaves me breathless. My overall feeling is that I just want someone to hold my hand. But that is too big a job for anyone. They just want to go to the event to have fun and I certainly don't blame them. That is, after all, what I want too.
So....I think I will start small. I will hold my own hand while crossing the street. Go from there.
