I grew up poor and consistently worrying about my finances.
Currently celebrating my friends bachelor party eating out at a nice restaurant and trying to stop an anxiety attack over the cost of the food.
@Grample_Gust technically nothing has changed. I’m too anxious to be funny tonight. You do that for me eh?
That won’t go away. All I can do is know it’s coming and ride it out. Make it a very rare occurrence or, if possible with heads up, check out the menu and have a plan going in.
Sorry I wish I had some better tactics. I grew up poor as well, and even though I’ve worked hard since and can afford to do expensive food thing, I can’t shake the anxiety either.
