Dear Carolyn: I am chronically ill but work full time and am literally able to do little else other than work and take care of my home. Socializing is exhausting for me, doing it out of the house more so, and even when it is wholly limited to weekends, too much means I cant go to work on Monday.
Ive lost nearly all of my friends due to this even a woman whose wedding I was in just under two years ago now rarely calls. How does one remain social when people dont really want to be friends with someone who is ill and often housebound? Cant Socialize
Answer: Im sorry youre in this position, and your friends havent been willing to accommodate you more.
