I have the same problem with people and crowds so I can sympathize. That being said, suck it up and go!! Its well worth it!! The people are great, the talks and the stories are awesome, its just generally a great time.
As for taking Thursday off, I wouldn't sweat that if you cant get it. The event doesn't officially start until the afternoon and the majority of people don't get there until Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.
