I suffer from conditions which affect my ability to function normally mentally and affect my ability to function physically. Yet, my family treats me as normal until it’s convenient otherwise! I deal with resentment as so much is expected of me without taking into consideration my conditions! I feel like them acknowledging my limitations isn’t convenient for them when they have these expectations.

      I have family who tell me to suck it up and stop being a drama queen.

      I know your frustration. I have to run my household even though I physically can. I'm the only cook I mostly only clean and do laundry. My mother literally lives in her chair and does nothing she brand new knees she wasted etc but it's so hard for her to do anything and she will tell you she's lazy. My husband trys and helps but he works 40 plus hours a week. My mother only pays attention to my issues when it benefits her.

        @Lygia that is similar to my experience. My Aunt doesn’t lift a finger except when cooking dinner only, and that is because she doesn’t “prefer” my cooking! She cusses and fusses the entire time, making it clear that she’s put out by that. I hope you can get more help.

      I know it’s frustrating. I don’t have people expecting things of me like you do. I just motivate myself when I can. There’s still things I have to do like make apts go to them, volunteer, do housework. But it’s not a lot. I never feel like I do enough. I get tired for no reason and low moods. I can’t believe I’m never going to be able to read a book or remember things and I’m trying to find peace w it.

        @Taylorshan I can understand that. I can’t say I know how you feel when it comes to reading or remembering things, but I can well imagine! My heart goes out to you! Thank you for your reply.
