Why do people have to be so uncaring and mean sometimes?
For those of you who don’t know (which is probably most of you), I have been having severe hip pain that can go clear down into my knees and sometimes other places in my legs. I have been unable to stay at work for a full day, except for one day, since two weeks ago last Friday. I hurt at home quite often. I simply sit in my recliner all day. I don’t go out and go shopping any more. I can’t take the kids to their baseball practices or games.
I have tried different medications. One made me deathly ill and the other one made me so sleepy that I could only take a half of one. I am now on an anti-nausea medication to take with a more powerful pain medicine.
I’m writing about this because a situation has arrived in my life where a person was unfeeling towards what is going on. I normally have to do something to back this person up but the pain got so bad on Friday I couldn’t do it. As a result, I brought up something that needed to be done for me and this person said that takes too much time to do what I needed. When it was brought up me not doing what I needed to, I told this person I was in too much pain to do it. This person replied back, “Of course.” In other words, like I am making up this pain.
Believe you me, I would not make this pain up for anything in the world. I wish it had never started to begin with. So then I asked, “Do you not have any compassion?”
This person’s response was simply this: “No.”
I asked, “What, do you think I’m making this up?”
The person said, “I have no opinion.”
I just don’t get how someone cannot care whatsoever. If I could change this I would. My doctor is even going to sign for me to get a handicapped parking permit due to the pain. I am on crutches. At home I try to just use the cane or walk without it but half the time I have to have the cane and when the pain is really bad at home I have to use the crutches. This stinks. I am only 38 years old.
