Since I have come on this site I have devoted a lot of my time to a cause I believe in.I am not a consellor just someone who has experienced a lot of pain and suffering and lost to many years of her life to this illness.I have been helping some teens with their problems because I still understand their pain and because I work with youth and understand their limited capacity to understand what is happening to them.But In the recent couple of months I have been lambasted with the dramatics the come with the pain.Since I am on the computer ,It is hard to read what I can't see.Basically they tend to want it all.Your time, your attention, your life.They do not conceive that there are others in your life or that you might not be emotionally available to accommodate their needs at times.The least little mishap and they turn on you like you are the beast from Kalamazoo.I am just a little confused and lost as to where I went wrong here.It has been causing me some very not needed stress and anxiety and depression.I hate having people angry at me over the littlest thing.It belittles everything I am and have tried to do for these young people.A little advice please.Going under.
