Sickem

818d

Anyone else’s friends make you disposable when you started having bad health issues/got sick so it’s like your just alone now? It hurts when you never thought they would especially when you were close af and always had the best times. Or they seen you post ab your health before and never bother to see if you’re ok, text Or visit even see if you’re still alive? If I died rn they’d never know. I know I haven’t always been the most perfect or greatest friend even but one thing I would never fucking do is leave someone if they knew I was sick. Fucked up

      Even mature people don't understand unless they have experience with it.

      I found only the real ones stick around - same for significant others! It took me FOREVER to find someone to date that I trusted but honestly now that I’ve seen how he acts when I’m sick, I know he’s the one! It SUCKS but you will find your people - it takes time but you know they’ll all be there for life!

      I don’t have any friends anymore. Right when I got sick, I had some but I was like their token sick friend, and they got bored of me after a bit so now I’m alone

      It’s horrible! I think it’s because a lot of younger people don’t know how to react to any illness. I was finally disabled by my shitty femur growth in highschool and I got left behind. I understood my friends not including me on mall trips or hikes but I became an after thought when it came down to things I COULD do. They could have just invited me to a place with an elevator or to the game nights but because they were so worried about accommodating me or offending me with accommodations they just left me out all together. It was horrible even though the majority of the time it wasn’t intentional. After I got out of highschool I found friends who were candid with me about my disabilities and it got WAAAAAAAAAAY better!!! Their behavior is not okay even though it is common. I promise it will get better as people around you mature!

      I had a friend group at 18-19 where all of them stopped being my friend when my anxiety issues were at it's peak and I was suicidal. You're not alone but the situation sucks. It came down to lack of understanding, and lack of maturity/ability to deal with it on their part. To be fair, I was not a very good friend at the time, but it was still fucked up how they handled it. You'll get through this and find better friends.
