What is the most extreme thing you’ve done to get out of going to an event?

I feel a bit awful posting this, but it was during an incredibly hard time, and I have to remember to extend myself a little sympathy...

I was being stalked by a man. It was known by all my friends, I had proof (he even taped notes up at my work and home that made it clear he knew where I was).

My friend had a speaking event. I didnt want to go- everything was stressing me out, I felt like my life was falling apart. I told my friend a few hours before the event that the stalker contacted me again, and I didn't feel safe going anywhere. (The stalker didn't make any contact with me that day).

I'd call lying about an incidence of being stalked to get out of an event pretty extreme, haha.
