people just do not know what we go through. I have some friends that really just have no clue but are really great in other ways and I have some friends that are so understanding it is unbeliveable.
Not everyone will ever 'get it'. Judilyn is right, it is good practice on standing up for ourselves. My original pc care Dr. was like you don't have colitis, you ate wow potato chips one time so this is why you have this problem, even though your Mom had it does not mean you do.
Dr's are people too some are idiots just like everyone else.
