Hello, I would like to ask if anyone else who is disabled or chronically ill gets “bullied” and nagged from family members about medically necessary medication to allow a person to better function, reduce their pain levels and try to achieve a somewhat better quality of life?
I am dealing with significant other commenting and stating derogatory comments that my eyes show that I took my medication or something similar. Also, it has escalated to the point where I’ve been told I cannot accompany this person to (wherever the planned destination was that day) because of fears of what people would think “seeing that I’m using my prescribed medication” which we all know sometimes have side effects that, especially someone who knows you before you became very ill and knows you for decades might be more apt to notice differences in appearance or other induced side effects of prescription medications. Thank you very much. Best wishes to all 💝
