Any advice on how to tell well-meaning people in my business community to get lost?
I know they mean well and I’ve had another pop up to say he can get me off all medication as his girlfriend was taking plaquenil for fibromyalgia and she’s not now and fine. She didn’t want to take meds so eats a plant based diet with supplements and is in remission.
I’ve tried saying that for me, i went from not having anything to completely immobile in three weeks and that where I stayed for almost two years, and it’s RA and I really don’t want to go back there again. I lost friends, nearly lost my business and I’m in a good place now. Why do some people have this overwhelming urge to change people.
I now feel I’m inadequate, not trying hard enough - all those things. I can’t be rude to him as he’s in one of my business groups and I don’t want to be rude anyway - it’s not how I am. I’d have zero social life if I did as he suggests as it revolves around meeting friends in lovely restaurants. Do you think I should try what he suggests and I’m being stubborn?
