Do your friends and family typically check up on you?

Do your friends and family typically check up on you to see how your doing? None of mine do, not my cousins, my aunts, my uncles, my old friends, no one unless I go visit THEM. No one drops me a message on Facebook or anything like that. I talked to a lot of my MS friends on Facebook and a lot of them felt the same way. Some of the said its basically just the hype dying down... Isn't that kind of messed up? I deleted a lot of people off facebook today because I mean, if they can't even just say hi every once in a while then why are they even my friend you know?

I think sometimes family and friends don't know what to say. How would some of them respond if you said "hey, I wobble like a drunk, have some incontinence, can't feel anything below my waist, and my drugs make me think suicidal thoughts". I think family and friends want to know and believe you are fine, they don't want to hear about the ugly parts. That somehow it would be to uncomfortable for them. I know it sucks, but I've also had to learn how to say hey I need some help because I'm having trouble doing certain things.

Yeah bit all they got to say is "hey, what up?" and that is better then nothing! I don't know, since I posted this my relationships with so many people have gone up down and everywhere in between until finally some of them has disappeared and to be honest I kind of like it this way now.
