I just saw your post on TTCAL in the newbie check-in from 12/15 since it just got bumped. I just wanted to send you hugs. I hid during my churches Christmas party too. They all new I had a mc so I knew they would be super supportive and nice but I really just didn't feel like talking to anyone at all. Since it was at church, I found a room no one was using and sat in the dark, drinking hot chocolate, crying and bumping. I do give you props for hanging with it for 2 hrs. I just dropped off my pot luck queso and hid. You sound like a strong lady!
I just wanted to reach out, send you some ((Hugs)) and let you know you are NOT alone.
