One of those days...

Posted , 4 users are following.

It's just been one of those days when I find myself apologising to people for being ill and not being able to do the things we'd planned....why don't they just get it??

      Hi Bron, thanks for your reply. Think I'll try what jcnps suggests and not apologise for being ill next time. I wonder if we do, will it change people's attitude? Who knows?

    Maybe you need to stop apologising for being ill??   I have - ok took me a while but it has certainly made life easier

    Doesn't stop me saying sorry for not being able to carry out plans sometimes but that is vastly different from apologiing for the state that I am.   

    I have to remind myself about this sometimes and remember that saying 'no' is ok and not a sign of weakness.

    If people don't understand that is their problem not mine...not an easy situation but better than me feeling guilty for being ill when that is beyond my control!

      Thanks for your reply, good point well made, you're right to make the distinction between our illness and inability to carry out plans. Thanks forsharing.
