I produce no more hormones anbd have had cancer since so I cannot take growth hormones because it makes things grow so to say. I' a'm so tired I mean I went from a healthy fit energic person to a life of exhaustion. I clean take care of my animalse ,dog etc. but I use to be complisive no one could walk in without shoes. Last week I broke my foot. I have to keep it raised etc and the house is not organized now but here is what happened, A longtime friend and her husband popped over and screamed and humilitated me two days ago. There were dishes from the dishwasher drying on tyhe counter and dishres from my husband. She anfd her husband looked in my fridge. room to room. Am I wrong to be upset with her?

m i wrong?
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Indeed, you went through alot, two major surgeries and then a change in life style altogether. It is a big challenge and in our daily practice we come across loads of patients who are put through more than they can handle.
Being a surgeon I often have to advice people on the risks and benefits of the surgeries they are about to go through and not a lot of people can actually contemplate and absorb the risks of surgeries.
You must be a very courageous and strong willed person to have undergone these surgeries and are indeed recovering from them quite well.
Your friend, since you call her a long time friend, probably cares about you alot and is having trouble seeing you with a broken foot and on a bed, since you said you have been an active person and energetic being, maybe your friend is having trouble accepting the fact that you are on the bed and not as energetic as you used to be. Maybe she is not as strong willed as you are, so you don't need to be upset with her, infact you should spend some time with her, make her realize that you are the same person and still energetic, except that now your energies are concentrated on getting better rather than being active and atheletic all the time.
I'm sure she'll understand.
Good friends always do...
Hope this helps.
