Anyone experienced family and friends comparing themselves to you, so if your tired or in a flare, or in pain they directly compare. I find it infuriating, there is nothing similar between us, they aren’t doing it to try help and empathise it is so it makes me feel like they are struggling too but able to still do x y z while i can’t. These are those close to me and see the horrendous down days and flares so at this stage I can’t do anymore explaining. It feels a bit tit for tat… Any advice?
