Woman drops out of wedding over 'best friend's' harsh comments

A distressed woman says she dropped

out of her “best friend’s” wedding party...

after the bride-to-be referred to her worsening health as a “curveball”

that might disrupt the big day.

The former bridesmaid, a 23-year-old

woman who refers to her condition

as “progressive…like MS but slower,”.

said in a post on Reddit’s “Am I The Asshole?” forum that she has been best friends with

the bride-to-be for seven years.

However, when her friend first got engaged, she apparently asked her coworker.

who she knew “for less than a year,”

to serve as her maid of honor

instead, due to her disability.

As the woman’s condition progressed, however, her healthcare team suggested

she begin using a wheelchair...

to aid in her mobility — a decision

she also wanted for herself.

and one that apparently

didn’t sit well with the bride.

After a heated exchange in which

the bride presumptuously said

her friend could “use (her) legs” and...

“manage fine” on the big day, the former bridesmaid decided to distance herself

from the wedding party entirely.

Hundreds of commenters rushed to the woman’s defense, assuring her she

was not the one in the wrong
