Frustration, listen to me or PISS OFF!!
I’m trying really hard to stay positive and be realistic. I have made an effort to educate myself best I can and be proactive in daily living and also for a longer term plan. I know that this is not just going to go away and it is more than likely that it will remain in varying degrees for a looooong time!!! I can feel my frustration now rising with people around me. Everyone means well but it feels like they either are not listening or aren’t taking this seriously, or they are just plain not interested. People that should know better by now will drop in unannounced and talk and talk and talk …. Do I really have to remind people constantly that just because I look ok please don’t assume I am. The other thing that pisses me off is remarks like ‘in a few months when you are well again’ or ‘you’ll be fine before you know it’. I know that those comments come from a good place but THEY ARE NOT HELPFUL, it makes me feel like YOU ARE NOT LISTENING …aaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!! Either listen to me or mind your own business please!
When will they ‘get it’???
To me it seems like the sensible thing to do is to start making plans and finding ways to live successfully with this rather than trying to deny its existence or to just sit and wait for a few months and see what happens. I know from past shitty experiences that I am an adaptable person and I can always find ways to feel productive. I have endured many challenges and I have always made the most of things rather than just giving in to them and allowing them to take life away from me. I have tried to express this to people around me and they all seem to think that I am being negative, I shouldn’t assume that it’s not going to get better soon and it’s to early to be changing things to accommodate this. I totally disagree, I see my willingness to embrace it as a positive move rather than a negative one ….
What do you think???
