Maintaining relationships is so frustrating when they refuse to understand my conditions are lifelong. Yes, I can be doing better in general and even have some productive days, but will still have really bad days where I can barely walk and there isn't much I can do to avoid them. Sometimes even with minimal stress and every precaution possible I will still get bad flare ups. They also don't understand that purposely stressing me about my health doesn't do anything except make my health worse simply from the stress 😖

    Totally understand. My ex never understood no matter how many times he claimed to. He tried harder with my physical issues but was worse with my mental health problems. I would literally be in bed, crying, suicidal, and he would tell me I was stressing him out…. Like that was going to help the situation 🙄

    Yes!!! Then I feel guilty for not doing normal activities daily. With sometimes a flare lasting as long as a week my husband of 40 years still doesn’t understand being in our middle 60’s he still goes to work and then he compares that with my not being able to even get up some days ! 😢😢😢

    I have those days as well. The guilt when he looks at me so frustrated hurts. Then, there are days he is supportive. It’s confusing.
