Why do people not understand? (see details)
I have physical (mobility related) disabilities, a son with special needs whose services I manage, I use a power chair to complete housework and all daily-living tasks. I live with chronic pain that isn't well managed.
I help others whenever I can and push myself to stay active.
Family members, as well as friends seem incapable of understanding that I have limitations, that I can't always be where or do what they want me to. If I forget something important to them, they get upset, if I don't respond to them as quickly as they would like they cut me off.
Why can't people understand that I'm not able to do the things I used to be able to do, that I have to prioritize and focus on things they may not think are important?
