Hi all I'm here just to vent at the moment. My partner is constantly asking if I'm okay, or am I feeling better.
I know their asking because they care but it's driving me mad.
I'll have to go to bed because I feel so awful, then an hour later they'll ask if I'm feeling better. NO!!
Or they'll say "hopefully you'll feel better soon"
I've got anemia which has wiped me out as I've been on a low residue diet for months due to constant small bowel blockages caused by strictures and Adhesions. I'm due to have a balloon dilation to help with the strictures, they are also checking for inflammation as i have severe diarrhoea and nausea daily. So until that's all treated I'm not going to feel better. I'll be getting an iron infusion soon but I'm dreading prep day ugh!
Some days are better than others but I really am struggling with pain and fatigue, not sleeping well and not eating very much. I don't have much energy. I just wish they'd stop asking me if I'm okay or if I'm feeling any better. I feel like I'm under pressure to feel better, even though I know they don't mean it that way, it's how the constant questions make me feel.
I have asked them to stop asking but they only stop for a few days and then start up again.
Anyone else feel this way?
