God I so love the barney song and as a way to get it trough to people...I remember when my kids were young and they used to watch barney all the time and how I used to sleep eat and dream about
Barney lol...what a great idea!!!!
For me if its a woman or one of my girls I use there periods as an expamle and how they feel when they get it and how much it drains you and how on the first day you can hardly get out of bed and then I tell them to X that by about a 1000 and they have that everyday all day and it never goes away....Usu shuts up the woman right away.
People are inhertany ignorant though when it comes to anything they themselves have not experinced. We all are, I know for myself altho I could simpathize before my acc. I didnt really have a true understanding of it intil i went through it myself so I just try and ingnor those people, its really not worth it at the end of the day to let them get to you, you have enough to worry about on any given day. Plus you are your husband are the only ones that pay your bills take care of what you need to take care of and you have to live with each other so what others think really doesnt mean a hill of beans. Opinions are like ***holes everyones has one...but thats all they are is opinions, its not like there God and are gonna strike you dead for not following there rules on what they think its right or wrong.
Another thing I do , I just smile and say I really hope you never have to find out what its like but if you do I will be here if you need to talk. That usu shuts them up as well because it for one puts the responablity back on them to deal with and 2 it shows you have compassion and you are willing to do what they wont.
I really hope you just let it go and worry about you and your husband Pamela you are the only ones that really count.
