I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, especially as it applies to my own family, none of whom are interested in learning about chronic pain or what I deal with every day. I’ve been thinking about how I would react if one of my family members also suffered from a chronic medical condition… and I don’t think I would ever choose disinterest. In fact, I would do my own research in case I could find something that would help them.
In the past, I’ve made excuses for my family’s disinterest. Lots and lots of excuses. But I think I’m done with that now. I get more support from the blogging community than I do from my own family, and I think that says a lot.
So, to all of you bloggers who have shown interest in me — just want to say gracias, amigas. 🙂
