However, there's a problem.
I have a chronic illness, of the type that involves needing a bathroom. It's not fun, don't try it.
anyway, it's been acting up lately. A lot. To the point that I can barely run my normal errands without it acting up.
And a NYC public park is probably not going to have uber-fancy or uber-comfortable bathroom facilities--even if I could get over the embarrassment of having a flareup in public & in front of extended family.
I haven't RSVP'd yet but I'm pretty sure I'm going to say no because if I'm miserable, I'll make everyone else miserable and it's supposed to be a happy occasion.
Is this an acceptable reason to say no? (The part under the cut, I mean).
Is my very-family-oriented family going to cut me off? Will I regret not going for the rest of my life?
