Does anyone find themselves being seen and treated differently because of their injury? Treated differently from siblings, friends, family and so on?
I'm sick and tired of being seen as the vulnerable one who needs to be kept an eye on, can have sensitivity taken advantage of, as well as overprotected. I forever feel in competition with my sister because she can eat and do whatever she wants without being worried about.
For example, at the wedding of a very close family friend I was put at a table with my parents.
It makes me so upset. How does everyone else handle situations like this?
