Having an awful time today pain wise. Everything hurts, well it feels like everything hurts.!!...kness, shoulders, hands, etc etc u know the score!!!
After a suitably frustrating and sedentary day doing nothing apart from watching tv and crying when lifting pillows on my bed hurts!!!!!!!! I texted a family member who I receievd a missed call from explaining I was in a lot of pain and didn't feel up to returning the call..NOTHING!!!!
I then texted a friend who had recently returned froma long holiday back home......welcoming her back..... She knows full well I am ill and haven't been working for 4 months .....but I didn't mention it just wanted her to know I knew she was back .......and again NOTHING.........
As I write I know I am feeling really sorry for myself but I can't help feel cross and isolated that my loved ones have no empathy for me at all.........again I know I shouldn't worry about these things as people who are not in chronic pain can't possibly understand the experience and I shouldn't blame them , but I feel cross
I know focus on half full and not half empty and all that.....but I guess today I am feeling the isolation more than usual.......what are people's experience of this???? Do you have similar experiences with people/ friends /colleagues not understanding????
Sorry for moan guys and hope your day was better than mine! 😄
