How do you handle family or friends with good intentions, but end up being unreliable?

You can only be responsible for yourself. Give others grace and know you can not control their actions. It can be painful at times but you must adjust your attitude.

I'm sorry your family wasn't supportive when you needed them to be. No one can truly understand what you are going thru. Even other MS sufferers can't because we are all different. It is for this reason, I find I am less judgemental than I once was. I suppose that's one good thing that's come from this disease. I hope you have support from friends and love ones if not from your family. We all need someone to lean on now and then. I wish you only the best.

6 month after being diagnosed I was expected to be back where I was before diagnosis. I'm better now, but the people who were so unrealistic are people I don't spend time with. Most of my family is so supportive, I'm am so grateful for them!

Smile, thank them for their good intentions - and then focus on people that CAN be reliable and make you laugh & bring you joy. Remember, YOU are your own best advocate. Take care of YOU. Watch something funny on TV, listen to music you enjoy.
