I feel your pain!!! When I first got sick, my sister told me it was all in my head(while I vomited in front of her). Well, it must have flowed from my head and went out through my mouth and butt(at one point it would happen at the same time). When I was in high school I would practice "sick" faces because no one would believe me. My family and others still don't believe me!!! I have this relative who "one up you" with illness. My stomach hurts, hers feel like hell. I was on the toliet 6x in a hour, she was on the toliet for an hour. I haven't ate since yesterday, she hasn't ate a thing all week!!! A lot of times I forget that I am sick because I am so mad with her. When I complain about
feeling bad, she would watch me like a hawk(like she is waiting for me to slip up). I am like what is her problem. We are both sick, what is up with the competition? She should know better because she is like 20+ years older than me. Others are urging me about
disability, but I don't know if I can deal with the "whispers". If you didn't sleep all night, of course you are going to sleep when "normal" people are up. If you have constant diarrhea of course you are going to be in the bathroom. If I have cramps of course I am not going to run your errands for you when you have own family. That's why my enemies are my family.
