Hello my friend, Be kind to yourself, you let it out............you know when people keep making comments they sometimes set themselves up for the truth and they own the problem of knowing when to say," I am sorry, having a chronic disorder cannot be easy." Then move on to another topic.
Throw out the guilt, you are just human and extremely kind. All my life people have felt they have the right to say inappropriate comments to me so I understand this problem. One day I just bit back at someone that had been doing this to me for 10 years, I decided she was really not a friend and I had been allowing her to be disrespectful to me.I did not handle it the best way but her mouth fell open and I just kept on walking. Shame on me, it felt good and yet sad too.Hugs to you this morning and Happy Valentines Day.Kitt
I was already overweight and the prednisone packed on another 30 pounds.
I am trying to lose and have lost just a few pounds so far. I work in a public library and patrons think nothing on commenting on my size or anything else they want.
Just today, I had a lady I've known for years, say well what do you eat? You've got to find something healthy, surely they've given you a diet. I said well, I am so restricted I have to set my own diet. She kept pushing, I was not going to tell her my meals and finally I said just don't worry about it and walked away.
Then, I must look really fat today because another long time patron wanted to know if I was losing any weight. I said yeah a few and she said well, you need to lose more! Then, she said I'm sure you're doctor has told you to lose more!
SO SO rude, I just walked away.
It's hard enough without the peanut gallery chiming in every day. I didn't get this size overnight and it's not going to go away overnight either.
Also, I had to wear my protective diaper today, so maybe my rear end seems larger.
