I’m having a sad moment tonight because it’s just so unfair that being sick makes people treat you differently.
Before I got ill my partner’s mother ■■■■■■■ loved me- was always calling me up, being kind and even standing up for me when my partner was being a dick. Now she barely even speaks to me and I texted her the other day to ask her something and she said ‘just Google it’ in this really dismissive way. I can tell she now just sees me as a burden to her son and is thinking he deserves better. But I’ve not suddenly become some horrible person - I’m still kind and try and look after him and do my best to make a contribution. It’s just so ■■■■ and feels so unfair.
How do you all cope with being disliked for no other reason than having this illness? I just get so intensely sad, it’s hard to move past it and toughen up or whatever.
