You're completely right about this, I took it waaay harder than necessary. It just struck a real nerve, I think, when my nerves were already jangling. I messaged Helen about it today and she laughed off the idea that I had anything to feel bad about. The conversation actually had a bit of a flirty tone. Not sure I want to go there? Hmm. No reason to dwell on it.
