Hi! I suffer from chronic pain non stop and I find it hard to know how to behave with my family. I'm single so with family I mean my parents that I visit quite often now when I feel alone. I don't want to be the person that is constantly complaining, but I don't want to lie either when I'm in serious pain. Some times I feel it's better I don't spend time with people - I don't want to bother them. But I also know it's not healthy to start to have those kinds of thoughts. Today it's Mother's Day here in Finland and my sister is coming here to my parents' place to celebrate with us. And I just feel I will ruin the celebration with my bad mood. But I just can't help that I'm so sad and frustrated. I'm doing the SEP - day 9 - and I understand that this anxiety because of the pain is what I need to deal with. I also understand the psychological aspects - I have a lot of stress in my life at the moment. And grief. But some days are just so hard to get through. Most days actually. Any thoughts on this?
