I've been to a few gatherings recently as well as in the Christmas season and I came to a realization. I get along well with drunk people.
I have some anxiety about going out with groups of people these days because it takes all my energy just to get ready. I really want to make a good impression but with my severe fatigue, when I get extra tired, it can take extra long to get my words out. I forget words. It's frustrating and I hate it. When in that position I feel like a complete moron.
I miss my superhuman memory. I was at the very high end of the memory spectrum and getting used to conversing with people now is very stressful...
Until I realized that I fit in like a glove with anyone who's been drinking. I don't drink because it's all I can do to show up with some makeup, clothes that fit and hair that's bedhead free, if I drank anything, I'd be on my face.
The funny thing about being in a group of people is that they assume I've had a few nips too. I love loopholes like that. So far no one has caught me and I can relax and feel comfortable even if that means being completely anti social and curling up in a corner on the carpet.
