Social anxiety at Christmas

Social anxiety at Christmas

Social anxiety is the persistent fear of or anxiety about one or more social or performance situations that is out of proportion to the actual threat posed by the situation. The festive period provides a unique combination of such situations. While a degree of worry about finances, potential drunken mistakes and the awkwardness of spending time with extended family is entirely rational, sufferers of social anxiety can obsess about such issues until they prove debilitating.
