My husband and I attended a friend's wedding this weekend. It was a lovely, fun evening, but I felt like a total wet blanket because I chose not to drink. I have enough migraines as it is, and drinking any kind of alcohol is almost always a sure-fire trigger for me. In fact, I already had a migraine that night, so it would not have made any sense at all to make it worse by having a drink or two.
Most of the time I am not the kind of person who worries about what other people are doing. I make the choices that are right for me. And no one made me feel even the least bit weird about my choice. But it was really hard to see all of our friends living it up and having a blast while I held my husband's beer so he could dance.
