We went out with friends on Saturday evening. One of the group doesn't know us well, and seemed to want to give me all sorts of advice to heal me. sigh. Saturday was not one of my better days, (still not a better day, *#*# PMS) and I had some problems with carrying things, and walking very far, and climbing stairs, and with sitting on a blanket on the grass in the park to eat supper, (did bring a little camp chair, though) and etc. I get so tired of explaining why I am as I am to people. I'm thinking of getting some of the good pamphlets on FMS to carry around and just hand out. Tell them to read it and then ask questions if they need to. I don't like being seen as disabled or unable to do things, and generally do pretty well, but Saturday was difficult. Any suggestions on how to handle people who either mean well and tell me what I should be doing, or are less than kind in there behaviour toward me? I really hate having supper conversation focus on Beth And Her Ailments. There are many far more interesting things to talk about. Peace, Beth.
