The first thing you need to do if you know you have problems in a large group is to plan how to handle being in them. Can you sit at the back? Make sure you have a way to exit the group. You may want to think of what you might say to exit the group. Using the washroom works well!
Next make sure you do not avoid groups but you may want to plan what group you want to start with. Does going to a movie only freak you out slightly compared to a large family reunion? Then go to a movie. Next go to a small party and build yourself up for the family reunion.
Are you worried what people might ask you? Plan what you might say at the reunion. You can even have a small sheet of paper in your pocket to give you comfort so you know what to say.
