Family members can be very insensitive. I will pray that soon you will be able to get out of this situation. It is definitely not good for you to be there. It is bad enough that we question ourselves, much less an arm chair doctor advice from your relatives.
Sometimes I wonder if family treats us this way sometimes, because they are in denial. Denying your illness might be easier for them to deal with. Maybe others in our family prefer denial rather than admitting you are really sick.
My best to you
Hi Serina, thanks hun. yeah I think it's easier to just live in their fantasy world. Here I have home health care 15 hours a week. nursing care, a case worker that stops in, meals on wheels for when I can't cook. She even looked at my computer for what she could delete and said do you want me to delete this lupus group? I really do appreciate them praying for me. I beleive in maricles but to be told when I'm sick I should get up and move around do stuff. It will help me get better faster. Oh if that was only true.Oh well I'm trying to get over this, maybe it's the steroids that are really keeping me fired up. I was gonna ask you if you had ever done a sweat lodge?
this woman, your mother-in-law, is overstepping her boundaries and limitations. But living her house makes it difficult for you to be assertive, and your right to respect of you
The Cherokee, my people, only used a sweat lodge when a person was sick. The Lakota people do use sweat lodge for spiritual ceremonies and guidance. I have never used a sweat lodge myself. I have talked to a couple of my friends who are Lakota, and some interesting things happen during sweats. Maybe one day I will get to do this myself.
I was thinking of your steroids earlier. While I lay on the bed trying to recover from the night. up all night with Diarhea. do not know how to spell that word. I used to take prednisone before. maybe I will ask my doctor for this medicine if it will give me the energy needed to clean my house.
It is terrible what you are going through, and I will continue to send my prayers your way.
