Started getting sick around 11 years old. The way I grew up was you pull yourself up by your bootstraps and do not complain. As a result I did not voice how badly I felt physically.Has taken years just to be a little okay with it. Guilt is there, but working on it thanks to all of you. Has anyone ever felt that way? I am getting to the point of just not caring, whether people judge me or not. My social life is limited anyway. I mostly only see my kids.
