I found out I have RA 5 months ago. I come from a big family. I am the oldest daughter with 5 other siblings. All are married except two youngest, they range from 43-30. I was always the big sister who coordinates all the holidays and if you need help I am there but recently I decided to stop doing anything for them, Since I found out I have RA none of my siblings ask me once how I am doing? Yes not once. I have a sister and her husband who both are nurses and they told me once “ lucky it is not lupus”. I feel like they are a bunch of jerks. I realize now at the end of the day I have to take of myself because you gave doesn’t mean you will get back. Am I harsh?
Sorry for the venting , I feel frustrated. Thanks for listening!
