It's something I've been dreading, but I knew he would be invited to one eventually. It's at a skating rink this coming Sunday The thing is, it's not the diabetes so much that I'm worried about. I've been socially anxious for such a long time. I've come a long way with it-I can handle doctors appointments, talking to teachers, calling people-things that used to be really hard for me. That's one thing I can (strangely) thank diabetes for-it's forced me to communicate with people. But, the idea of sitting at a table with a bunch of mom's (or dad's) that I don't know makes me so nervous! Add in that I'll have to be dealing with Sam's blood sugar, and all the fun surprises that a birthday party can bring (birthday cake, pizza, and roller skating-oh my). I'm having a panic attack just thinking about it. Heck, I don't even have the courage to call the mom to RSVP. How do I shove past my own stupid fears? Please tell me I'm not the only one that deals with this sort of anxiety. Not to mention, what fun things can I look forward to as far as d management?
