my parents live over 200miles away. so they do not see me from day to day. around this time of year my mum likes to organise christmas, meaning who is going where for christmas lunch. well for the past five years my parents have come to my house for christmas lunch and they visit friends while they are here. as they do not see me from day to day, they dont understand how my health has declined. the other day mum rang and asked if her and dad could come here for christmas and i said no. this is due to how my health has got that much worse. the moral of this post is my parents, family, friends, and fiance do not understand how much pain im in, and how my health has declined. does anyone else have this problem? and feel as frustrated as i do! sorry for the long post .
