I'm sorry you feel this way. I am also an introvert....kind of. When I was young, I'd have anxiety attacks around strangers. Now, I have gotten better, but when around a bunch of strangers, I'm really shy.
It got to a point in my life, that I was letting some potentially really good times/potential memories pass me by, by shying away from people. So, I've made myself get out there and be social. Most of the time it has paid off.
There have been times when I was feeling uncomfortable around people I didn't know. I had to tell myself that I am responsible for how good of I time I am going to have. I have made myself go up and talk to people. It's amazing the self confidence I gained from that.
Don't let life pass you by. I think you and your husband should do things together, but don't make him solely responsible for your good times/memories. I'm not saying go to every family get-together, but paintballing is really fun, and I never thought it would be until I tried it.
