i simply tell people its kinda like having an allergy . . . to yourself! kinda funny because now when my actually allergies are acting up, people will ask "what are you allergic to - besides yourself??" it at least puts it in a way that they can kind of understand and relate to . . .
This sounds exactly like how I handle it!
Take care, Fran
