Does anyone else feel this way?
I know it sounds really strange. If I concentrate on how I am physically, I can see that I'm ill. This is hard to put into words so maybe I am just the only one? However, When I'm told to rest and be kind to myself because I have this illness part of my emotions reject that I'm ill.
Maybe it's a denial thing cos no-one likes to think they have been ill for so long. Other people complain when they have felt ill for 2 weeks whilst we get it for years. My hubby has said that his knees have hurt going up the stairs for the last 2 days (I've had that for years) and frequently say I wish I lived in a bungalow.
Is it a denial thing cos I don't know if / when it's ever going to go away? If I'm not ill then I don't have to worry about never getting rid of it?
It's maybe also cos I don't look ill (unless I'm using my sticks or mobility scooter). I can even get away with wearing a magnetic back support so I can stand for a while without the supports if I'm not too bad.
Anyone else feel emotionally like they are not ill?
