It’s normally well-meaning friends and acquaintances.
“Why don’t you try exercising more?” “My friend told me about this supplement.” “Maybe you just need more vitamins.” “Have you ever tried changing what you eat?”
Believe me, I’ve tried just about everything. And I’m sure, if my rheumatologist knew about a miracle supplement/drug/diet he would most assuredly tell me about it.
It is hard sometimes for me not to get aggravated with people who I know are just trying to help. Sometimes I feel defensive. Do you not think I’ve tried everything to make myself better? I WANT to be better. I want to be free.
I have to tell myself that people mean well.
