  • Holiday "Guilt" or Whatever You Want to Call It!

    I had a heart-to-heart conversation about the holidays with an IC patient today (she also has multiple conditions). She said, "I don't feel guilty about not being able to do "everything," I am over that. But I spend a lot of time in my head dwelling on the fact that people are judging me." I asked what she meant about that, and she said she "sees" disappointment in people's faces that she can't participate like she used to. Do you feel that way too? Do you think this is more a reflection of what we feel, or is it true, people judge you? If so, let's brainstorm ways to get over that so we can all enjoy the holidays! You deserve a lovely holiday just like everyone else!!!
