Your situation sounds different than the Bee whose Fi is making her genuinely physically ill.

What I’m getting from your post is huge anxiety about the wedding itself.  Have you considered counseling to learn some ways to manage the anxiety or even meds, if appropriate?

I hate to think of you suffering when a good counselor could help you.

rosegoldgirl:  My reactions consist of eyerolls, long sighs and FI and I looking at each other and laughing b/c I am incredibly stressed by this whole debacle.  But what you’ve got going on sounds much worse.  You might want to talk to a professional!  Sometimes, I get a knot in my stomach b/c the mere mention reminds me of the things I need to do, but that’s the worst of it.

It sounds as if you are so worried about being the actual centre of attention at the wedding, that you aren’t enjoying the planning process at all. I would seriously get some help. I had the sam thing and ended up on some anti anxiety meds and a course of CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) and it worked WONDERS. For me the CBT was way better than the meds as its helped me long term a lot.
