How do you guys cope with the responsibilities you have to your friends and family members? I'm having a really hard time lately trying to keep up with everyone's expectations. I know people are just being nice, and its nice that they want me around and included in their lives, but certain times (like now, when I've been flaring for a few months) its really difficult to keep up with doing 'normal' things. Long car trips, long days, sometimes even SHORT trips are just out of the question. My body just completely shuts down, I get sick (naseous, shakey, weak, and in a lot of pain), and have to cut the trip short anyway. So if I have to say no i'm dissapointing people, and if I say yes when i'm really not up to it, something happens and the day can't go as planned. Again - dissapointing. It's just really hard to cope with dissapointing other people, AND myself because i would really like to be normal. How do you cope with these normal people things that you just can't do?
