This is my first retreat and I'm going with my church's youth group. Slight problem: they all know each other and this will be the first time I meet them. So I'm really worried about fitting in with them since I know they are such a tight group already. I'm a huge introvert so it's really hard for me to break the ice. Any ideas?
Also, I have emotophobia (fear of throwing up) and so whenever I'm traveling I'm worried about having stomach trouble which would lead to a panic attack. Any idea how I can stay calm and distract myself if my stomach starts to bother me?
I'm so scared... I mean I'm going into my senior year so I should be mature and all, but I hate going on trips (and that's when I know the people I'm going with) and this is without anyone I know!!!

It's okay that you don't know them yet. Just introduce yourself and let the conversation flow. I'm sure they will be accepting of you and include you in their conversations/activities. Try not to worry about it too much. After you initially break the ice and get to know them a little more, it will be a lot easier.
As for your motion sickness, you could try taking some dramamine before you go. That helps a lot with motion sickness and nausea. And also, ginger ale is supposed to help ease an upset stomach as well.0
