I agreed to participate in an activity with a friend but because of the discomfort of this activity I a put boundaries in place to try a keep myself feeling safe but this friend found a specific part of the activity that my boundaries did not cover and said we are definitely doing it but it also happens to be something that is not only uncomfortable but also extremely triggering.
I feel hurt because this person knows what I have been through and how much I do not want to do it but insists that I have to because I didn't put a boundary on it and I promised.
Ive tried to talk to them but they are on listening

Thanks for replying @CheerBear, well this person did not listen to me and said that I couldn't change anything and guess what.... I apparently ruined the whole thing for them because I freaked and passed out and due to health and safety of place I had to have paramedics check me over before they would let me leave. Thankfully it's a small town and paramedics drove me home because my friend refused to. They go home tomorrow and sadly I don't think I will be inviting them back if I talk to them again

Hi @BabyDragon, it is understandable why you feel frustrated, you have confided in your friend, set boundaries when going out and have felt pushed and triggered when those boundary lines have been pushed into territory that you aren't comfortable with. Have you told your friend how this made you feel?
