Do you ever get tired of all of it? I cringe whenever I have to tell someone what is actually wrong with me. I ALWAYS get one of 2 looks. It's either pity or disbelief. Most people don't understand me in my family and friends. I am the only one in my family that has MS, and everyone just kind of blows it off or goes overboard with concern. One of my brother runs around town, telling everyone that I made it all up, one brother treats me like he always did and it's no big deal. Then my other brothers wife goes overboard. I love her to pieces, but she is always telling me to sit down and slow down and take it easy. Even my husband waffles in how he treats me. One day I am fine and the next I can't even carry a laundry basket through the house cuz he doesn't want me to hurt myself. Then to top it all off.... My mother and I work for the same company, and she has pushed me out of my job so that she can have all of my hours cuz she got laid off from her full-time job.
I barely even leave my house cuz my mother has run all over town and told everyone that I am sick. I go shopping and someone is always asking me how I feel and have I gottin any worse. I won't even discuss things unless it's with someone I trust and who knows everything that I have gone through. This has been going on for over a year. I had hoped that this would be old news by now.
Sorry for the long post. I just needed to vent and this is the only place I have where I feel sure that I won't be judged and told to shut up and stop whining.
Love many, trust few, always paddle your own canoe!
