isdm, Sorry your parents don't listen to how you feel. I find that no one understands why I do or don't do certain things anymore. They think I'm wasting my life away. Sometime I feel like I'm wasting my life too. I'm so glad I come here because I find that others with lupus understand and go though the same things. I'm so glad you have Norma. She is so understanding. You two have so much fun together on facebook.
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
