You got that right!
MS sufferer here, and the amount of friends I have lost because of how inconvenient it is to them is incredible. To the point that I in fact now have no IRL friends because of how many times I have let people down. I am so inconsiderate to have ‘caught’ MS, I am ashamed at how much I’ve let them down
Do NOT be ashamed. My heart breaks for you. Your so called friends should be ashamed of themselves.
Take your energy, even your anger, and direct it towards building those relationships you do have with family, neighbors, church members, friends, whomever you do have.
I struggle with asking for help, always been one to do everything myself, but am learning there are some who want to help.
I also struggle with not complaining about my situation, my symptoms, how bad I feel when I’m with others. They don’t want to hear it all the time and it doesn’t help my attitude. I try to be my usual self as much as I can. Who, by the way, is usually fun and funny.
I started to agree because I “stopped” reading at inconvenient… Then I finished reading and agree even harder that’s pretty messed up actually, even though ∞% true!
