Hello all. I'm Zoe. I'm 40 yrs old. Diagnosed at 27 yrs old.
I feel strong emotionally but something is really getting me down.
My 5 yr old daughter and I moved into a domestic violence refuge when she was just 2. So then we found a home. I was in refuge for 1 yr.
So moving on....I got 200 miles away so I don't know anyone. But my daughter started school and is in year 1 now.
So I got talking to mums at school as u do. But.......I am so fed up with some. I can't always answer my phone and I can't be there sometimes but that is a big problem for some people. So i I get made out to be a rubbish friend and sometimes get treated like one. I don't go around judging everyone but I feel judged by some. It's invisible at times...isn't it. FMS. I've heard comments like she's in bed again. And moody people when I can't pick up phone whenever. It's really getting me down.
I know I don't need friends like that. So I now have 2 mums at school now not talking to me.
I have 1 solid friend thats not like that in our new area.
My best friend is in the area I had to leave which was so hard. She has M.S so she gets it when I say I'm sorry I was to tired or unwell. She knows. They have their similarities those illnesses.
She is an amazing person. I miss her like mad.
I have made 1 very close friend where we live now. The rest get me down so much they just don't get it. I know it's an invisible illness but still it's rubbish being judged. I'm very unhappy and fed up. I end up feeling like a rubbish friend to people. Which I shouldn't let them get to me but it does hurt.
I know those people are not real friends but it does still hurt and get me down. How do u guys feel??
Thanks for listening.
