Well, I can't live up to my username today. It is hard to hear a friend say, "I've given up on you." I am used to doctors giving up on me, but I keep hoping my FM-only & well friends can understand why I'm not the same me they used to know. They've had 21 years to figure it out! Today I learned of this statement made about me by a friend of 13 years who also happens to be my body worker. We try to get together to do "normal" things, but more often than not, I cannot hold up my end of the bargain. It's understandable that she's given up. But I wonder, have any of you ever heard similar remarks made? How do you handle it?
