Hi all! I have been extremely poorly all weekend with stomach flu. I had to miss several important engagements and although people were lovely about it, I just feel my weekend has been completely ruined. Even though I feel better physically, I've now fallen in to a mini depressive state. My parents are trying to "help", but how do I say to them in a nice way I don't need advice I just want to get through this on my own? My mum had a go at me because I had been in bed all day and I "should be out in the fresh air" and my dad just sat there like a lemon and said "well what do you expect me to do about it?" Sometimes I really think I've turned a corner with them, but other times I feel very alone in all of this.
