Have you ever been out with your pals and suffered through an outing so you would not disappoint them? The pressure to be well is sometimes overwhelming.
I talk to my travel companions ahead of time about my limits and make a joint plan. I have to decide what I can do on a daily basis, and may need to opt out of some activities. When I discuss my limits with others ahead of time, I have been able to reduce the chances that they will be surprised or disappointed, and reduce the chance they will pressure me to do more than I can handle. When I need rest, I make arrangements to catch up with my companions.
Have you had these discussions? If so, how did it go?
As always, please feel free to share your thoughts and experiences. I hope that by sharing my experiences you find strength, hope, and solutions when you make your commitment to live beyond your illness.
