Fellow chronically ill people…
Do you ever find your reactions to usually healthy people’s complaints about being sick depend on the person?
Like one person could be like “ugh I have the flu I’m so sick” and you’ll be like “aww you poor thing I know how horrible that feels, I hope you get better soon do you want some tea and a blanket?”
and then another person could be the exact same way and you’ll just be like “ugh shut up! You should count yourself lucky you’ll get better within a week or so!!”
Maybe I’m just a moody, fickle person. Bc it’s usually people who bug me that I have the second reaction too.
A guy I work with who just generally annoys me just made a status about how he had the flu and then an allergic reaction to something and will it ever end. I’m just like
yes, yes it will so stfu
tbh it usually really doesn’t bother me when usually healthy people complain to me about being sick even when they know about my health issues, because like being sick sucks, they have every right to complain. Me always being sick doesn’t cancel out the suckyness of their sickness and like it’s not like they’re trying to minimise my pain so why should I try and minimise theirs you know
it’s just those select few people!
