harsh family support

After reading how your brother responded to you when you seemed to reach out to him on the TV thing and your treatments, It made me realize how in general, most people try to understand or listen at some level, but don’t focus enough to get the real picture. My Three Siblings have a touch of this reality condition.

I have discussed or told many people I know about my condition. They really don’t listen. The very next time you see them they ask how my back is doing or about something not even close to what they are told. Many are consumed with themselves and offer only seconds of real attention when being talked to. Other don’t believe what they are hearing and their internal mechanism is to suggest alternative cures or vitamins. I personally avoid people who don’t engage in conversation. I won’t waste my precious time on them. It doesn’t matter who they are. They are out for themselves only!
Family or not, its a two way street.

They just don’t get it or want to get it.

I am sorry about the hurtful words and the way that made you feel. That is why we are all hear.
