*Fair warning* This will be longish.
Some one very close to me claimed that I use my health as a crutch, because I choose to sleep in between 530-11am. I work nights. This year has been the first that I haven't been going to school full time while working part time. Now, at my families request, I'm am doing one or the other until my health stabilizes. I have put myself through dental school, years of college. Working to pay for it on my own. I am almost always fatigued. I wake up with enough time to clean, cook, play with the pets, walk the pets, read (learning something new every day), research things for myself family and friends, call my mother and one of my close friends just to brighten their day, work out, do some yoga, garden... I could go on and on.
I'm so livid I don't even know what to do. This person knows my medical background, has been supportive and understanding for such a long time. Where did this out burst come from? Why now? WHY would this person say such a thing in such a harsh manner? If it was bothering this person, why not sit down calmy to discuss it instead of attack me? This really saddens me. It reminds me why I spent so many years loathing most people. I don't want to be like that again, I prefer to have faith in people. But this.
This I do not understand. I needed to vent. Aside from my mother, I figured yall might understand.
