Same here. I went to buy some flowers downtown and it was pretty difficult. So many folks and very little sidewalk. But I managed to do it and I felt rather proud. I think that if you want to partake in something then you can simply modify things to not be so uncomfortable. For example, I don’t participate in the independence day celebrations because of the fireworks, music, smells, and noise. Same thing for New Year’s Eve. Even the parties at work, I manage to weasel my way out of them.
