i sympathize with you. i refuse to stay put and hurt, but friends "worry" when i take off to costa rica for weeks at a time. i'm off for a 3-month trial living there for possible re
location. they don't get it. yes, i have a chronic illness that may act up. yes, i hurt and get tired. but have to live. so do you. instead of being negative, would be better if he would offer to help you do things. wish my friends did too. but somehow we're shut off from doing things because others think we "can't do it" or "not up to it." i have secondary progressive ms, and at first wanted to give up on everything. but w/help of meds like ampira and baclofen, can get around better. but i['ve had enough of not being invited places, being offered an arm when i can walk and being treated like i'm too fragile.
i love costa rica because the people are very helpful and understanding. hoping my trial life as a "tica" works out and i can live the life that i want to live. i hope you find a way too.
there's a bumper sticker out there that says "i'm not drunk, i have ms." that's what i tell others when i tip, stumble, list to one side. linda
