Sure, situations like this, when your very existence is tested, can burn bridges, but can it build them, too?
I mean, I’ve definitely felt a stronger pull away from certain people than I have towards others.
It’s hard to act normal around people when things AREN’T normal in your life.
On the other hand, I don’t want people to solely see me as a “sick” person. Even on my bad days, I hope I’m a lot more than that.
I guess my frustration is that I am supposed to cut people slack for not empathizing with me, and yet when I’m not feeling 100%, no one is cutting me any slack.
