You are experiencing anticipatory anxiety. This is perfectly natural. I still experience this type of anxiety when I am to go to a social function where there are a lot of people. However, I recognize that my worst fears rarely materialize. Sometimes there is no concrete reason for having this type of anxiety. Just the thought of entering an unfamiliar environment or situation can provoke anxiety. It can be as simple as having a fear of the unknown.

I think one can make it easier on themselves by understanding that anticipatory anxiety often disappears once one has entered the situation. If you believe this, you can then increase the probability that you will have a comfortable, enjoyable experience. I can guarantee you that you won't be the only one having anticipatory anxiety.

You will be okay.

:-)

Have fun.
