Well meaning..but not helpful (for me)
I've recently been diagnosed. I let the initial shock subside and embraced that part of my brain & personality which is about process and planning rather than panic. So lots of information gathering, talking with close friends and contemplating available choices & options. At this point I am sure of my treatment decision. However one friend in particular has responded by insisting she will help 'cure' me through a range of naturopathic potions, powders & pills. Additionally, she suggested I have not looked after myself in terms of diet and exercise. I do have some appreciation for natural remedies, and as I have a lifelong disability I have always taken care of my nutrition and well being. Whilst I think her approach is well meaning, it's not helpful or respectful. I don't have any family, live on my own and so my close circle of friends are important. But I need to focus on my decisions and choices without gestures and comments that are intrusive or not supportive of my own path. Any advise is welcome, thank you.
