So today I had a Dr appointment and things went fairly well. I need a procedure that I can't afford as usual. So on the way back I call my GOD sister and I end up house sitting for her this week . which is awesome because it mean I can get away from my current living situation for a few days.
It also mean allowing for some new level and new people innmy life. You know the type. The well meaning type the type that feel because they have had a headache once in they life that they know how we feel. my GOD sister is a small skinny women who has one fibrod tumor that is not problematic. And she feel that if she hugs me enough and prays loid enough that she will be able to heal me. I love her and she is good person and like I said I know she mean well. But I had to start today settings limitations on her. Letting her know what I could and could not do. I don't think she likes it. She told me I should just stop taking all my meds and just let her help me. I was like uhhhh yeah....uh OK??? But of course duh nope..thsts crazy talk. I don't want to alienate people buy iknkw I've got to set limits.
Once that happened I had a conversation with my sister as she tells me I need to tell the drs about all this pain that I be whinning to them about..and yes..she said whinning.. So yeah we had a conversation about that. But I see it's gonna be a process with this. But I feel.I'm making steps

I'm glad you are able to take a break from your living situation. And that you are having these conversations with the people around you. Great job

Thank you gotobef... It's always a challenge but I feel as if I'm getting a handle on things. I have been fighting so long to get my old life back. Bug I'm beginning to see that is gonna just cause more damage and pain. So I have to learn how to navigate this life and set limits on myself and others. Something I never did in my old life.
