I have no idea why I do the above. I get so excited when I receive "planned visitors". I chat and enjoy the company totally distracted forgetting the PD. They leave and then my husband sees me wiped out, moving slowly etc.
If you called in on me unannounced it would be another story but I do not allow this to happen.
I think it would make relationships with friends easier if they could actually see me struggle instead of wondering what I am on about when I say I was awake all night with leg pain. Or I have to cancel our catch up and a coffee at the last minute as I cannot safely get to the destination.
At work I simply could not hide it as I could not control who saw me, when, where and what time.
I am sure I am not the only one that does this. Why do we do this?
It worries me a little as I am very independent and was very outgoing. I find that I plan everything and lately anything out of the ordinary completely throws me and I get stressed out \ anxious very easily for silly reasons. Which of course exasperates the PD.
This is causing me to plan everything around my home \ my comfort zone!
