Had my occupational health appointment yesterday, plus a doctor's appointment, and had my second injection this morning. I find no-one seems to understand what I'm going through. They just see it form the clinical side - which I know is helpful to a degree. But in my OH appointment she just kept frowning or, dismissing when I said I was scared (don't get me wrong, she was absolutely lovely), but whenever I said I was worried because there's no cure, just a treatment etc. she just kept dismissing it and saying that 'it's only a deficiency, it'll work'. It's so difficult to try to get across to people how much of my lie is dictated by this illness. She even mentioned that at 23 I was incredibly young to have this condition and she hadn't come across anyone that young with it, which didn't help as It's hard to find support and experiences from people who have it this early. I'm worried that people just can't understand what I'm going through. Even my mum - i know she means well, but she is a tough cookie - says "You just need to get your head together and get over it". If it was that easy, I would do it straight away. She uses my brother as an example who is diabetic and Coeliac and says he's over it. But he was diagnosed several years ago so he's had time. I was diagnosed 2 months ago and people expect me to ignore it and just live my life. Not sure where I was going with this but just needed a rant.
