Sorry, but this is both a rant and a plea for advice.
I always feel like a burden asking people to slow down for me, or knowing that they're worrying about me, but at the same time I know that these things are important and necessary given how sick I've become recently. I guess I just don't know how much to let other people take on. I hate always making my roommate take the elevator because I can't take the stairs and always cancelling plans with friends...which have quickly diminished to about 4 at this point.
I know my swing dance team is talking about me (with concern, not scorn) behind my back, because they all give each other knowing looks when I can't dance, and they seem to have worked out some implicit agreement that I will always have a ride home and be dropped off first if there are multiple passengers.
Needless to say, I have so much unnecessary guilt that I don't know how to handle. I'm embarrassed to rely so much on others and I beat myself up when I can't do things that I used to be able to. I know this attitude really isn't helping my condition (which has yet to be diagnosed), so I suppose I'm just hoping for some kind of advice from someone older and wiser than myself (I'm 20 in two weeks)
