It’s my party and I’ll stress if I want to! Caroline Foran on her “hostess neurosis”

I was recently (myself) diagnosed with a common mental illness – hostess neurosis. I believe, first coined by New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin, hostess neurosis refers to the state of panic one enters before arriving and while entertaining guests in one’s home. When did I realize I had a problem? After my son’s second birthday party.

I didn’t think much about it at first – the frantic karate cushion chopping; the threat of a divorce from my husband, who decided it was time to make a sandwich just as I was lighting up the kitchen. No big deal. He’s gotten used to me now. In the hours leading up to our guests’ arrival, he affectionately calls me a dictator.
