I think you should get some rest and go for a bit. if you can
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

I can only speak for myself but I would do my best to get dressed and go to the party. Your daughter is leaving for college so this may be one of your last chances to do something together for awhile. I worried about any family gathering and I think the reason is you fear you will be judged by them. Family can be the worst critics. (for me anyway) For me, if I missed my childs graduation party I would feel very bad about it. Do the best you can, she will understand and you will feel better about yourself if you go. Good luck-God Bless.      D

I understand your concerns very well;
I was in similar situations and I decided to actively involve others who organize, help and later tidy up if necessary as much as ever possible; it was not that easy in the beginning as others do things differently and it is somewhat of a learning process to even let the own husband delegate the work which has to be done; our deal was that as I am ill I am off responsibility and get an "invitation with extra care" (LOL) ....but: it worked; I always got an extra nice comfortable place where I could relax and just watch. Mostly they had also organized a place for me to lay down for a nap if I needed; and another side effect was that some began to take my health condition more serious and started to help and understand.... and I did not loose connection with the family.

I hope you can relax some and find a good solution. Remember we are all here for supporting you mentally. Sending you a lot of strength vibes !!! Congrats to your daughter !!! Blessings, hugs, dorit
