@reese Caveat: I’m so sorry you have to consider this. I can truly only imagine what this decision process is like for you, and the anxiety it may produce. I wish you could wear whatever you damn well please without having to weigh others’ opinions and questions.

I’ll humbly posit this thought: making a decision for yourself that makes you more comfortable or more safe or less fatigued isn’t cowardice - it’s doing what you need to do for yourself.

@reese …whatever you end up wearing, *you* will be there and that’s what counts. :maybe_hug_empathy:

@reese I hate the way families make us carefully mete out our Selves this way. I'm sorry this is something you have to even consider. But if it's worth anything, I'll send energy your way 🖤
