That much public contact and spotlight would stress me out, too. It's overstimulating. hopefully you can find a quiet place and time at the conference, even if only for 15 or 20 minutes to meditate or just breathe. There are probably other people there who are uncomfortable with scmoozing. Can you seek them out and just stand quietly together a bit? Having to "work" a room is enough to send me hiding with a migraine. it is anxiety provoking. So set your expectations low, and don't put too much pressure on yourself. Schmoozing is hard to quantify, so do what you can, and take it easy. Especially because you are sick. (Echinacea can help, too.)

And I know about husband's being grumpy about picking up extra housework. I'm working on my dissertation pretty heavily right now. If I'm not actually working on it, my brain is just fried, I can hardly put two words together to respond to anyone, and thus I'm just vegging out.

One thought which occurred to me, besides take out...paper plates! Just throw them away. No shame, no hassle. It makes perfect sense. And we have yoyo night at least once per week, if not twice. It stands for "you're on your own" about dinner. As long as he knows in advance or at least as long as there are leftovers in the freezer, then it works out fine.

Take extra care of yourself. There are a lot of demands pressing on you now, so you need extra time to recharge.
