sadly i have similar experience.
also i am a bit older now close to 40, actually was pretty successful in life and never lazy, always doing things, having dreams, working non-stop because my work is my hobby, freelance/entrepreneur, beeing motivated. actually from money and professional POV i am (or was) most successful guy in the family.
and mother wasnt short to brag about it.
but then i became sick and now suddenly i am just lazy, need to push through... its all psychiatric anyways etc. no support from family neither emotional nor financial. at least they were nice too clean and quit my appartment after i was in nursing home and couldnt do it myself anymore.
no use talking to them, its just another sad reality i have to live with.
i have a friend which believes every disease is just a expression of the psyche of some soul problems. she is so convinced by this she even believes if she hypothetical would do a brainscan and wouldnt see the imagery or hear the results, she wouldnt get brain tumor. so she isnt doing doctors at all... which i somewhat can relate with but for different reasons.
when she talks about this, she actually sounds a bit nuts.
what i do not understand, her theories never helped her with her problems... but she keeps insisting they are correct...
some people are so convinced by their believings that they are not capable of any intro- and retrospection.
there is one vegan i know, which got sick because of that diet... needs to take a shit ton of vitamins and pills now, is eating organ meats, because of induced deficiencies and serious illnes but is insisting that this is the healthiest diet and everyone should do it. just take all the pills.
this is totally bonkers, i cannot believe people cannot see their own ideocracy. its like buying a garbage car from a junkyard and claiming this is the fastest car in the world - you just have to switch the engine... replace tires and put a sail ontop the roof...
