That’s what a friend told me today and then I explained to them that it might be 6 months to a year til I feel 100% and have no symptoms and then they said to me you don’t have to 100%, silly. In reality, if I don’t put effort out and keep in touch, I will never hang out with this person. It sucks in many ways and I am not trying to be cynical or complain but I do have to express this. Aren’t friends supposed to be there when you go through hard times?
In contrast, I am feeling better a little bit each day, but it is a bit of a journey and it does take time. Am I getting there, absolutely, am I going to fully heal, absolutely, but also that doesn’t mean in the meantime I am not somebody you can’t hang out with or be social with, etc.
I feel a lot of people have said this to me, I’ll hang out with you when you feel better, etc. Well maybe those people aren’t real friends and shouldn’t really be in my life.
