So my neighbor and her family want us to go out to a town 90 minutes away for New Year's Eve. My husband and I are really close with them and it sounds like fun....on paper. The drive to and from would really wipe me out and I know I'd be a stick in the mud. Not to mention dressing up, dancing, etc. I won't be able to keep up with anyone. Plus, being 90 minutes away from home if I'm too tired is enough to give me panic attacks. Before you ask, no we can't stay the night there. We have a dog. And since our neighbor is the one who normally takes care of him, I know that's out. My neighbor and her family know I have some health issues but they don't fully understand. Plus, I don't want to sound like I'm making excuses, which I know it will. They're very understanding and caring and I hate to disappoint anyone. It's so frustrating. I feel like I've had the "fun" switch turned off in me. Instead of getting excited at the idea of spending an evening with friends I think about my limitations and if I should push it? Anyone else going to do anything fun? How do you get through things like this?
