how to deal
Well as some of you know, I have been fainting almost daily for 4 years. I got my PM in June and am hoping with a little tweaking that the faints will slowly get better.
The problem is that I seem to be losing my friends. I had a great group of friends that used to hang out all the time and call to talk almost daily. Since the fainting, I have noticed that they don't seem to call much anymore and when they make plans to get together...I am usually left out.
I try to tell them how I feel but they keep telling me they are doing it for my benefit...helping me so I don't get embarrased if I faint.
One of my closest friends told me that she doesn't want me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding anymore bc she does not want to put the stress on me bc she thinks I'll be scared if I faint. So now I am her attendent instead.
How can I get them to understand that yes I faint, but I still want to live as much of a normal life as possible?
