Tony invited me out for lunch tomorrow! It’ll be his birthday, and he said he wanted to spend it with me. He’s been the one friend who has stuck by my side through all this. I’m so grateful to him for that.
It’ll be so great to have a normal meal with another human being. And after everyone sees us having lunch together, I think a lot of the stigma will go away. They’ll see that I’m still me, hanging out with my friend, and they’ll all be ready to accept me again. I’m well on my way to having my old life back.
I think tomorrow’s going to be a good day.
