Welcome! I am so sorry you have to go through this at such a young age. I started getting sick when I was 21. I also had a hard time at that point because my friends still wanted to go out a party and my body just could not handle it. I suggest you do something with your friend on your own terms. Ask them over for a girls night and a slumber party. You can choose a series on tv to rent a h movie marathon! My best friend used to this when I was to sick to get out of bed. We watched the entire series of Sex in the City. It was a blast! You could also have game night at your house. This way you can be as comfortable as you can. Certain friends will come into our lives and go. Remember everyone comes into our lives for a reason and they may stay forever or leave after a period of time. The ones who stay are the friends you keep close to you and cherish. It is tough all around at times but it does get a bit easier to deal with. Just hang in there and hopefully you will get the medicine that is needed in order to make you comfortable. Keep us posted and remember that we are all here for you no mater what is going on in your life. There is so much support and unconditional love here!
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
