Do I create self-fulfilling prophecy or do I just know what the hell MY body needs?!? 😡

Friends - how do you deal with a loved one telling you NOT that your pain and fatigue is in your head, but that you "always get yourself worked up that you CAN'T do something (like go back to work full-time with substandard accommodations after 6 months off on disability to heal from your worst flare ever) so then you create a self-fulfilling prophecy and just make yourself sick."

Is it so outlandish to consider the possibility that maybe I actually know what my body can and cannot handle and that I'm not willing to go backwards get that bad again? 😢

I believe we DO know better than anyone even the doctors what our bodies need and what we can and can not do. I'm so sorry you had to listen to that but YOU know better than anyone! We make decisions on what we know our bodies feel like and are capable of. Hang in there. You know! ❤️🙏👍

You know your body better than anyone. I'm sorry anyone told you different. (((gentle hugs)))

People are so clueless! I wish they could have 1 day in our shoes on a flare up day. It's like explaining labor pains... if you haven't felt it .... It's impossible to understand.

Thank you friends, this gave me a much needed chuckle.

We know our bodies more than anyone. A lot of times I go to the doctors tell them what's wrong and they end up agreeing . Because they have no idea .

Loved ones are tricky . They love you so much they think they know you the best . But really you know you better. You feel your pain not them 🤗🤗🤗🤗

Sending prayers your way. ((Gentle hugs)) Remember you know what your body needs .
