i had an accident last night while making dinner. this doesn't happen too often (this is maybe my 3rd or 4th this year) so i wasn't wearing Depends. i ran to the downstairs bathroom but my mom was using it, so i had to run upstairs. by then, it was already coming out and i ended up ruining my favorite underwear (i threw them in the wash but they are light pink so i don't know how much help that will be). well, i mentioned this to my friend because we talk about
everything and the convo went like this.
me: just had an accident and my favorite underwear are done
friend: i can't believe you still have accidents
me: well, my mom was in the downstairs bathroom and i needed it
friend: then walk your lazy ass upstairs and use that one
me: i did go upstairs but i didn't make it
friend: you're like an infant. i don't understand how you can't hold it.
honestly, i was so annoyed and upset that i felt like crying. he has NEVER understood this disease and has never tried, and it makes me wonder why we are even still friends. we've gotten in fights before about things like riding the trolley and stuff, but i've always gotten over it. i don't want somebody in my life that treats me like a joke. it's just sad because we've been best friends since i was 13. i think because most of that time i was well, he just can't see me as somebody who is sick. whenever i've been in the hospital, he has never visited me.
have you ever stopped being friends with someone who didn't get your UC?
