A little frustrated

Rate this Entry
Hi its been a while since Ive been on here. I have gone through lots including diagnosed with fibromyalgia, losing my hair again and losing weight rapidly. My best friend has decided to move out because my illness was getting too much for him and he wanted to be my friend not my carer. I know the this illness has its problems for our family and friends but I don't have a choice I can't just check out when I want too.

So I guess I want to know how do u balance the friendship line asking for help before its too much and they feel like a carer?

Any advice will be great

    darn...thats tough... im new here and i know how that feels. the way i see it, a true friend willl be there till the end no matter what. If you are having issues asking a friend for help with an illness you cant control, then i think that level of friendship isnt there... surround yourself with people who you definitely know will never have an issue helping you out. <3 good luck. be strong.

    Hugs!! It's such a hard thing to do is ask for help, you dont want to burden anyone with the erratic illness that Lupi is. It's not "all the time poorly" and we get our good days.. which is hard for "normal" people to understand as it can be a bit of a roller coaster. I'm sure your friend will come round and see that it's not like you can turn it off when ever the hell you feel like it.. and perhaps we do need a bit more attention than other people, but we are special and we deserve it! xx
