People sure can be odd creatures. That part about making sure you aren’t in crisis and hanging up…made me gasp in shock. But I understand; my dad was a hypochondriac/worrier, so I can’t even talk to my own mom, even about something as simple as why I turn down an invite to go to the grocery store (I’m extra tired/wobbly/achy) without her getting upset with me. (Hello, I need some compassion over here…)
Are there any GBS/CIDP groups near you or even a liaison you can reach out to? I’ve never been much of a group person, but I got determined to attend whatever meeting I could once I was able to drive again.
