I dropped out of choir today. On the whole, the board and the membership are very nice, well meaning people who want to do the right thing in finding a wheelchair-accessible rehearsal location, but in the last two weeks there have been several more rounds of concern that we’re moving too fast, that people will somehow be upset if the rehearsal location changes, and I can’t deal with it anymore. It’s like being punched in the stomach. I’ve sung with them for seven years.
I got in the car to go to rehearsal last night, and started crying. I cried all the way there. I sat in the car for five minutes trying to get presentable, went inside, and lasted maybe five minutes before starting to cry again. I managed to get myself back out before anyone noticed, and drove home. I obviously need to take a break from this situation. The altos will just have to fend for themselves, which I’m sure will be no problem.
