Hi Firebabe, I'm sorry your family is not more understanding. I know it hurts when they don't believe you are worse ignore you. I think most of us have or are continuing to go through the same thing as you. The most recent thing my SIL said was Stop coming to the Lupus site and Pray more! Like Hippi said You can do both. Somtimes I feel like they have their own life and for me to be sick isn't in their plans. Sometimes I feel like I have to be the strong one because they can't handle it. However I'm getting ready to go on vacation and I talked to my mom on the phone the other day. She asked me if I was getting excited about it. I said yes but I'm a little afraid of getting sick before I go. She said Just try to relax and not get to stressed out about it. For my mom to even recognize that much was a real step forward. I really don't have anything to offer as far as how to deal with them. Everyone is different. I hope somone can give you some good advise. All I can say is you are not alone in your frustration. Hang in there.
