Hold your head high - they have NO clue what you've been through to get to where you are now!! If you must say anything to them, tell them if they had been in your shoes, that they too would be grateful to just be able to leave the house a couple times a week - or to even be able to get out of bed! Never go into what you have been battling, other than saying something vague like chronic infections - don't give them more opportunity to gossip more.
And hold your head high (I know I've already said that, but this is important!!) - you have come through what many like them believe isn't possible. You are a strong woman that is climbing out of a deep dark hole and you have good reason to be proud of that, and ignore those that are willingly ignorant. You don't need them as friends anyway.
I sooo hope today is a better day for you!!!
Many big hugs from someone that actually understands where you have been and what you have come through!
