Nervous for a dumb reason

Jun 04, 2016 10:53 PM

So a friend of mine from highschool is back in town this week and she want to come by and visit. Which is great we talk several times a day every day and u would say what's the issue. I've not actually seen her in omg I can't remember how many years. And plus we talk about everything my illness .y issues with my mom everything. So I'm nervous because I hope I feel ok and well enough to entertain. I'm nervous because my mom will most likely be here so I don't need her acting a fool a d I'm not sure what we are gonna talk about. Plus I've always promised her I'd make her a nice meal or some kind d treat when we meet up and I do t really have anything I can make plus mom is cooking tomorrow and mom is a stickler for how the house looks when company comes over. I'm sure most of all these reasons are nonsense but yet I still feel them.
I've asked if she would want to go out somewhere to meet but she says she is ok with coming here. Probably since she knows how much pain I'm in most days. Plus I'm kind of a hostess when it comes to visitors and I want to have a nice set up.
I'm just hoping everything goes well tomorrow and no issues arise or problems come from it.

Your friend knows about your illness and will understand if things go sideways and aren't perfect. Try not to stress about it. Easier said than done I know.
I'm sure it'll be fine, but I understand the staying about nothing. I do it all the time too.

She is probably nervous, too. The most important thing is talk from your heart. We are all not so different, we are all connected through sincerity & our admitted goofiness. Ignore Mom and just laugh and visit and love the moments you have now. I wish you moments out of time when you meet your dear friend heart to heart. Relax & have lesser pain day.
