Flower, I get this at work all the time. Only my main supervisors know of my issues. Mondays I have injections done so I don't work monday I have my schedule changed to Tuesday thru friday in turn they work monday thru thursday. My hours can change and they don't understand which can get me to ugly looks and comments like "they must love you" smartmouthed. But I'm don't work to make friends. I used to have to work 12 hour shifts up until last week but its changed to 10 hour shifts (because of the need to have me there more days) but it helps me 12 hours is a killer with CP.
Family has just been told within the last 6 months about
my CP. I on the other hand demand myself to be present at all times from beginning to end. Some reason after my mother died now everyone comes to me for everything. I do all the holidays, birthdays and weddings. Now my family tells me to sit down or go lay down.
But yes I think ALL OF US deal with issues of CP with family, friends and co-workers on a daily basis. The ugly stares I believe will NEVER go away.
