I have been suffering from anemia for over a year. Not much

I have been suffering from anemia for over a year. Not much severe though. But it got worse when i got diagnosed for typhoid. Both the conditions take a toll on your strength. I feel like i live off of medications only. But the worst part is Family and friends not understanding. My Mother thinks I am just pretending to be sick.

I am sorry that you have no support and that your mother seems to be in denial. loved ones can be dysfunctional and somewhat mean when we are ill and suffering, perhaps because they are fearful and overwhelmed. :(

@andine Thanks dear. I don’t want to blame her either. You see she’s a widow and the only one earning at home is my elder sister who lives far away in Australia. But when you are sick you want your loved ones to understand that it isn’t easy for you too.

Your mom is under great pressure with your brothers addiction issues. Kind of you to understand her suffering.

@andine Thanks dear.
