I know we're not supposed to duplicate posts, but I wanted to let my Fibro family(along with my depression family) know about this...I hope its okay, if not I understand:
 
Well, I had to let my other family (you guys) know that prom is tomorrow night. Im SO nervous. I agreed to go with my guy friend, we are going just as FRIENDS. But, Im so nervous. Its not my thing at all. I HATE places with so many people. Its going to be packed. And I have to do lead-out, where the 2 people walk out together and are introduced in front of everyone(all the couples and there families) so, Im super nervous about it. Not a happy nervous either.
 
Honestly, if I could take it back, I would. I dont want to go, but I kind of felt sorry for my friend cause he wanted to go with me, cause we are best friends and probably because no one can put up with him as much as I can! (he talks alot!) And because he's gay anyway so, his only choice was to really go with a best friend, which is me. I cant believe I agreed to do this.
 
I hate going places. I hate being around so many people, and its such an important event and I could really care less. Plus, I HATE dresses.... its a miracle that Im going to wear one... *sigh*
 
Its quite funny because he and I are like opposites in the relationship, he's such a girl, and Im such a guy! He has planned EVERY detail out. He knows when he's getting ready, when to come get me, go to school for pics, go to the park for more pics, go to eat, go to prom, and whatever we are doing after(I dont even know!) lol....But, me...I could really care less, I dont even want to go. He's going to be dragging me around all day like a girl dragging a guy around shopping at the mall! Its going to be exhausting. Its supposed to be a "special" night....but Im not feeling it. I cant wait for it to be over with. Everyone is making a HUGE deal out of it and I really dont care about it... Is that weird??! Most girls are all over the whole prom idea! Dress, shoes, make-up, hair, nails, oh my! lol I HAD to get a dress, bluck! I dont really wear make-up, getting my hair cut but no idea how Im gonna do it yet, I just dont care! And I painted my nails myself, but ONLY because I dont want to feel "out of place"
 
Even though Im going to be 560% out of my comfort zone. shakehead rolleyes   I just want to completely skip tomorrow! I dont want to go, dont want it to be a big deal, cause it isnt to me...
 
Wish me luck, lets hope I remember to breath at least.... *sigh

Hopefully it will.... for some reason Im not all anxious excited about it...I guess maybe my meds are working?! I just dont care about it really, its not a big deal to me at all...

I do have a dress. Its a short one, rather than the traditional long formal. Its an olive green color. Pretty simple and plain, not very formal, but hey, its a dress and its WAY formal considering my usual style! Lets just be satisfied that Im wearing one! lol Yes, he will understand, he knows I dont want to go and that I get exhausted easily and that I dont really want to be there..I'd rather just go home and go to sleep! lol

I will post prom pics when I have some, so you guys can share this "event/moment" with me. Umm, yes, we started a thread a while back where some of us posted pics... maybe you can search it and will be able to find it. Its also nice to put a name to a face...especially when alot of people on here become a second family! (or so in my experience!)

Thanks

You remind me so much of myself when I was your age, I like dresses though. Keep being yourself, after the prom. lol

Enjoy what you can of it.

Aww, I know what you're going through.. believe it or not my school was so small we didn't have a prom!!  But I went to one with someone that was at a different school.  I didn't know anyone and felt like I was going to be out of place. But ya know.. it turned out to be not so bad.

Sounds like you're going with someone that REALLY wants to go.. and if for no other reason its nice to do this for him.

I also know that feeling of.. well it sounded like a good idea at the time.. but when the event is finally here I just don't want to go.  I've been through that about a thousand times.. usually it turns out ok.

Try to have fun, GF.. it's only for a little while and it will be a memory for a lifetime!! smilewinkgrin

Happy hugs..

Christi, I was thinking about you last night cause we haven't heard anything from you in awhile. I know all this fufu stuff isn't your cup of tea but you might have more fun than you think. Hey, your almost out of high school and making your last memories of it. I hope your not wearing too high of heels that may be uncomfortable for you. I wouldn't set time limits but enjoy it as long as you can before you get too tired. I know here they have after prom parties that last all night.
 
Please be careful of what you drink. I know there is a lot of spiking of drinks that goes on at parties on prom night.
 
HAVE FUN!!!!
 
luv and hugs

Thanks guys! Im more positive today. Its been raining a few days and is expected to rain and storm on and off all day so hopefully I will get some good pics before that...

But, I know even though I dont want to go, it'll be okay. Its just this one time and Im sure I can sacrifice it! lol

Marlee, Im not wearing heels! I dont do heels! And I tried some on, nope, they killed my feet. Not only do I have big feet that are wide, but Im also flat footed so heels dont work for me. I tried some flats but they dont work for me...so I ended up choosing some plain silver flip flops... More than likely we will all take our shoes off anyways, so I figure it doesnt matter!

I dont know if/where we are going for after parties. And I may have friends crashing at my place after that... I think as long as Im with my CRAZY friends I shouldnt have a problem falling asleep! Besides, if that happened, no telling what crazy things they would do to me! lol I'd probably wake up with a beard and mustache! So... Im staying positive...taking pics and tomorrow this will all be memories!

I think I can handle it! I'll add some pics as soon as I can! Take Care and thanks for the positivity! =]

Tennis, I'm so glad that you said you would go.  I bet you will have a great time with  your friends and, as Marlee said, this will be one of the memories of your senior year in high school.  I know that MANY times I've made plans and then could kick myself for doing it.  I go and end up having a wonderful time.  I think that will happen to you too.
 
I don't do dresses or heels either.  (I did chuckle when Marlee hoped you didn't have too high of heels!  I just KNEW you weren't a heel-type gal.   smilewinkgrin  ) I don't own a dress...haven't for about 12 years.  I have dressy slacks and tops that I wear and I bought myself a pair of black patent leather Birkenstock sandals and that's as dressy as I get.  Take it or leave it!  Hey, I'm comfortable!  turn
 
I can't wait to see your pictures and hear your prom story/stories.  I know you will have a lot of good laughs.  Enjoy yourself, kiddo!  You deserve it.

I thought by some miracle she would try wearing low heels tonight Sherrine. devil It even made my feet hurt thinking about it. The flip flops are fine cause your right the shoes will go anyway.
 
I wish we could be there to send you off tonight Christi but we will be in spirit. It seems like only yesterday GD was going to proms and homecomings and now she is waiting for a baby anyday.
 
I don't want to sound like an old granny but please be careful tonight.

Tennis, Sweetie, you try to have a good time tonight.  As others have said, you may really enjoy it.  Being with friends who care about us is nice because you can say things like "I need to stay sitting" & I am sure he will listen.  I can't wait to see the pictures.  As Marlee cautioned be careful & be aware of what is going on around you, ok?  Have fun, love & hugs, Denise

Christi,

By the time you get this post, you'll probably have that stupid dress off and everything will be over. Hopefully you had a good time, but even if you didn't, there really will be one day when you look back and will be happy that you went. I have HUGE regrets about not going to my Senior Prom (I went to my Junior prom). Anyway, in May I will be in your shoes (the non-heel type) when I HAVE to be a bridesmaid (honorary-so I don't have to stand so long) at my sister's wedding. I am NOT looking forward to it. Thank God for open bars, LOL! tongue

BTW-you owe me an email. LOL-I think you'll be extremely surprised at what I have to talk to you about, LOL. smilewinkgrin Talk to you soon, Kid.

Christi,

You're off on your Prom adventure by now I would think, but I did want to "stop in" and tell you I'm thinking of you. I know how stressful these sorts of things can be, but I do hope you were able to have a little fun.

Let us know how it went when you can-Can't wait to see your pictures!!

Tennis, I hope you are having a nice time at the prom. I think flip flops are a great idea. My daughter once wore converse tennis shoes to a prom.

Hope all went well Christi!

I remember my prom night- I had just started taking an anti-biotic for strep throat but decided to go anyways. UG! What a mistake. My boyfriend ended up throwing me in the pool at the end of the night and that did not fare well with me being sick! What was he thinking???

I just wrote this on the depression forum, its easier for me to put the same on here, Im sure you all understand!

Hey guys, first I have to say this: You guys have no idea how much it means to me that I have your support and that you all are life family and that you spiritually sent me on my way last night! Its so nice to come by today and read what you all wrote for me, its means more than you can imagine, so I thank you VERY much for that!

Now, on to the good stuff! I will admit the other night I really didnt want to go MOSTLY because it was so far out of my comfort zone... thats really the only reason. But, when I woke up yesterday morning I told myself "tomorrow today will just be a bunch of pictures and memories and it will be over". So, all day I did everything with that attitude. I enjoyed ever minute of it knowing that today it would be over and I wouldnt be able to go back and change anything.

So, I dont mind dressing up now and then, proving to people that I am capable of it! lol But, I had fun with all the pictures and being with SO many people all day long. I felt a lot different, I was quiet at times, but I felt a little more out-going. So, when time came for me to walk out in front of the school and all the parents and family at prom, I looked over at my friend and we gave each other a thumbs up and a smile before we walked out together. Leading up to that, I was so nervous, but the good kind! Which I dont remember the last time I've had "good nervousness"!

We walked out and everything went well! After that was over, we danced for several hours! lol It took me a while to adjust to that kind of thing...so many people around me dancing like there was no tomorrow! Having a great time... it was........CRAZY! lol I ordered a video of it which will be cool...
But, I danced, I got low and I jumped up and down, and I moved like I had never moved before! lol I danced with friends, guys and girls, we had a great time and it turned out really well. My date of course had to take breaks....but there was no stopping me! lol My legs were hurting but I was having so much fun I totally dismissed it. And yes, the shoes came off right after walking out! By the time it was over, I was so sore and so tired and it was so loud, but none of that mattered because I had done something I never thought I could.... I was proud of myself for letting go and for a while, I felt normal.

I felt like I had a life. A rare moment of happiness actually occurred.

No after parties for me... I was exhausted by the time we left, everyone was! So, we all retired to bed. I had some friends crash at my place and we went to bed a little after 2... I got up early this morning and stayed up reading posts on here and went back to sleep a while later...only to wake up at 5 this afternoon! lol I took a VERY long bath and read my book for school and relaxed. I think I'd have to say that this weekend has been one of the best! Although, it went SO fast.... but, still really good.

I appreciate you guys so much and it means alot that you all got to be here with me for my prom. Its a special thing and you all got to be there with me! That means the world to me. The best part of my night was the last thing that happened before I went to bed. I was about to go to sleep when I got thirsty so, I got up and I found a note my dad had written me. It said how beautiful he thought I looked and how proud me was of me and that he loved me. My family isnt "verbally expressive" so this isnt something I have really ever heard, so it meant ALOT to me.

So, thats how things went! Im glad I went, I knew I would be in the end....thats just how things occur. But, in the end I walked away with memories, pictures, a good time, and an experience outside my box. Thats reason enough for me. So, Im glad I got to share this moment with you all! Thanks so much

Awwww Christi you made my morning when I read you had such a great time. I was sooo hoping once you got there you would really have fun.
 
There are so many things in life we only get one chance at, even for us old women, and it may take all we got to do it but it is so worth it afterwards.
 
So what's left in your senior year, just graduation???

I'm with Marlee, your post made my morning! These are your "firsts" and how wonderful to take with it happy memories! A-w-w-w, and the note from your dad just about brought tears!

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!  yeah    I knew you would have a wonderful time once you got there!  I'm sooo happy for you and for the memories you now have.  It's great that you can get a video of this and relive it over and over again.  My prom was in the "Dark Ages" so they didn't have videos back then.  (Don't you dare, Marlee! )
 
Thank you so much for telling us all about it.  Now, I'm waiting for some pictures.  turn    I'm thrilled that your father wrote that note to  you, too.  That's how he truly feels but just can't verbalize it.  You are his beautiful little girl.

Tennis, Good for you!!!! What an accomplishment!!! I think you have every right to be really, really proud of yourself. It shows allot of strength to face down your problems & it is so good that you won!!!! Next time something like this comes up, you will have this to look back at & will be able to say "Yes, I CAN do it!!!" Can't wait for the pictures, hugs, Denise

Thanks guys! haha Marlee, you guys didnt live in the "dark Ages"! lol I would never say nor think that... lol Age is one of those things I dont like to think about so... you arent old in my eyes!

Yea, I cried later thinking about what he wrote because I know that my Grandma(his mom) would have told me the same thing. Even though he didnt verbally say it, he still said it and thought it. It meant alot to me because I know she would have said all that if she had been here. Thats what really hit me the most was that I couldnt go see her and show her and see her face and all that. I'll do the same thing on graduation because I always imagined her being there for me.. Im going to take a prom pic though and put it at her grave. I have a picture of me when I was little and I put it in 2 zip lock bags and wrote a message on it...WE had terrible storms and wind for a few days after that and I went back one day and it was still there on her tomb under a glass figure. So, Im going to take a prom picture and put in the bag with the other picture. And I will do the same with a graduation picture. So she will have them. She always had picures of me everywhere at her house so...

Im glad though that I have those memories and its given me a boost in confidence because I DID go out in front of all those people in something that was not comfortable for me. I got tons of compliments which made me feel better about it! And I danced all night with tons of people so..it really helps boost my confidence!

But, Im so grateful that you all got to share this part of my life with me. It means alot. Even though I have a VERY large family, I rarely associate with any of them, so for me you guys are just like a second family so, sharing moments like this is important...and means alot!

I'm happy for you! I really enjoyed reading about your prom, brought back some fond memories. Which you have now officially made some of your own.

Kiddos to your dad to acknowledging you on your important day.

Hugs,
