I am in a LOT of pain with horrible fatigue. Still having to work 35-40 hours a week and struggling. It's brutal and I'm sure no fun for my husband and friends to watch even though I try to keep my issues to myself.
My problem right now....and I will own that it is MY problem, is that my husband and a dear friend are driving me crazy. It's diets that consist of nothing but carrot juice. Endless books and articles all selling some "cure" or relief from pain. My husband is forever bringing home some oil or supplement that cost a fortune (money we don't have) and does little but upset my stomach. My friend is constantly questioning my doctors and why they don't prescribe this or that.
I've tried to be calm and kind through all this but it is getting to me BAD. I have explained that I don't find their suggestions either medically sound or helpful but on it goes, to the point of nagging. If I would eat this....not eat that....take this, not take that.
We have a good friend with MS and everyone is constantly comparing our disease and her treatment vs mine (except for her and I).
I'm sure I'm not the only one going through this...how do you cope?
