Reblog: How to Cope With Losing Friends After Diagnosis

A great post by Katie:

If even you don’t understand your illness, how can you expect others to do the same?

You cannot control the way people view you and what people think about you. You cannot control their feelings or confusion towards what is happening or what has happened to you. What you do have control over if how you react it and how to feel about it.

Friends and people will drift in and out of your life, but that doesn’t mean you are devoid of friends forever. New people will come into your life when you least expect it and they’ll be exactly what you need. They will bestow life lessons upon you and then drift away, leaving room for new angels to meander in.

About Hypermobility Syndrome India/Viv

I an an Indian woman with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type (EDS-HT), also known as joint hypermobility syndrome. Although I have "suffered" from this disease all my life, I was diagnosed at 38 years, 2 years after my child was born. My work mainly involves being a mom to my beautiful and compassionate child. I also write and work from home in the field of science. I aim to raise awareness about EDS-HT, chronic pain, invisible illnesses, mental illnesses and invisible disabilities through my blogs. Viv (Latin root, meaning Life/ Alive) is my blogging pseudonym and alludes to my continued endeavor to rediscover my life and its meaning.
