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
