My problem is getting people to see im not the same person I used to be, my husband, my kids see this but other family members still cant get it through their heads that I cant do things. My parents know I am in pain but I dont think they realize how bad it is and they want me to go shopping, make jelly like we used to or just come and visit.I get so angry sometimes and cry at other times. I have a sister out of state that just dosent seem to get it and I have really had it with her remarks about me just being a drug addict and I dont really need them. I also have a daughter out of state that I see once a year that just dosent know how bad things are, I dont like to mention it because she dosent understand my everyday life. I dont know what to do beside curl up in my bed and just dont answer the phone calls. They dont realize I cant cook anymore or go shopping or the other things they take for granted. How does everyone else deal with this.
