Why doesn't my family understand I'm tired and in pain most of the time?

I guess my family will never "get it." I can't walk through the amusement parks, beaches & other fun places like I used to. I need a nap & sleep longer than usual. I never realized how good my life was until I got RA 6 yrs ago. I'm retired now because of it & wish I knew others in my hometown that have RA.
