Too much alone time!

I'm having some anxiety about traveling alone. Please hope/help me!
For unknown reasons, my anxiety about the five days I have alone to travel this month is through the roof. I'm looking for hacks, tips, suggestions, etc. Details below.
-I'm a 33 year old woman. Married, but my partner is in the US.
-I have five days alone in europe before I meet my friend. Three full days alone and two days with people on one end or another.
-I'm in Thessaloniki, Greece, but was thinking of traveling to Athens before coming back to catch my plane to Italy.
- I'm a seasoned traveler and I love being alone, but I can't shake some sadness, loneliness, fear or something about those three days.
-I have a decent budget and can spend money to do cool things, but am worried they will be worthless without someone to share them with.
-I have friends in Europe, but would putting a plea on FB be weird? Seems like it might get my hopes up for naught.
I'm a little worried this is a complication from some travel I did alone many years ago. I was sad, lonely, afraid, etc. feeling like that is coming back to haunt me. So any tips on how to get past that, have fun, meet people (I'm very shy) would be welcome!
