OK... So I've never traveled outside of the US before.
My friend from college is getting married in Costa Rica. I had planned to go and was excited to go prior to getting sick and being diagnosed with celiac disease.
I've spent quite a bit of money on the diagnosis, changing my lifestyle, etc. Not only is money tight, but I'm also concerned about going to Costa Rica and staying gluten-free. How can I tell my friend that I am most likely not going to make it to the wedding?
It's this March by the way.
