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! ❤️🙏👍
I say screw em!!! The next time someone says something stupid like that to you...make sure you've got a nice size stick handy...then thwack em real good like in the knee and say.... see it's a self fulfilling prophecy...you bug me with that crap...I thwack you good...now get outta my way...you're not in any pain...it's all in you're head...now move it...I got things to do, places to be and people to see!!!😀😆😉😏😝
