I love my family...and having a crohnic illness isn't easy especially for the family that has to live with someone who has CP. I really wonder who as it worse. The sick or the ones who watch the sickness. I've had Crohns for 7 years now....
Just latley I feel like my family has all of a sudden just forgotten or denying I'm ill. They are done! They have decided to move on! They don't want to hear about it anymore and I have to deal with it everyday and it's not going away...ever!
They watch what I eat and correct me in public which is embarassing. Not only do I have Crohns but Diabetes type 2 so my diet changes daily...everyday brings a different type of diet for me. There are days I just want to cry because I can't seem to absorb much in nutrition...and I feel starving! They'll correct me while they are eating and enjoying steak! I try not to get jealous... but I really am.
Just the other day I told them I couldn't go to something because there wasn't a bathroom. Once again, well you can wait we'll bring you home (no...i can't) I cannot hold..I have much urgency not to mention how cool it is to about fall over in public from pain. I've had accidents and don't care to have others in pubic. I feel like they get angry with me but they are things I can't change and their support seems to be dwindling... Do other families go through this?
Just feel lost. I've lost my health, job and now my family just does so much without me....It's lonely.
