That must be a great loss. But when I read that missing meetings is a reason for dismissal from the Red Hats....wha??? It sounds like high school. If anything, the fact that the Red Hats (I think) is for older women, this just doesn't make sense.
I'd vote for joining something else, and I hope you look for and find something else.
Just a thought: would the rules still hold if the woman in charge were to become ill and have to miss a lot of meetings?
thats not fair. Bipolar patients cant do everything everyone else can. We unfortunatly have limits. We have our good,bad, and the ugly days. Thats too bad that you got kicked out. I know how you're feeling about the enjoyment of friendship. I'm craving that so deeply right now.
