I have no clue how this miracle happened, but my friend who never, ever believed I was sick actually believes it now. Wonders never cease. We were talking about another friend's upcoming wedding. And I said I don't think I can go because it's going to make me really sick. And my friend actually said to me that she didn't think I was well enough to go and that the sensory overload would kill me. And I was like, OMG, she actually gets it that there is a real problem! She said the day would be too long for me and the music at the reception would be too much. So I was just blown away that she actually, finally, after YEARS gets it and understood why I can't go. I really can't. I went out yesterday with another friend to a few small places and the sensory overload was so bad, I just wanted to die. I couldn't wait to come home. I'm really only okay when I'm alone and things are quiet. I have not told the one getting married that I'm not going yet. But I will eventually. I can't do it. So anyway, hell hath frozen over cause this one did believe me after many, many years.
