Hi Lyn. So sorry that you are having such a rough time. I see this thread was started a while ago. Did your finger heal ok in the end?And was it due to your Crohns?
My Sister doesnt whisper. In fact she has a habit of saying some things out loud,especialy when we are around other people. She was in the fish and chip shop with her husband the other day. Now,my Sister has developed a habit(not her fault obviously,its due to her illness)she constantly refers to "cats" everything she sees is either "a cat" or "a cat one" Anyway, while in the chip shop she pointed to some sausages and said rather loudly "Cat one,look cat ones!" The guy behind the counter couldnt help but laugh. My sisters Husband said somthing like "oh its ok take no notice she isnt well" and the guy behind the counter replied, "Oh I see,but it was funny though" He said it in a kindly way,he wasnt making fun.
You have to laugh about
things sometimes dont you? otherwise we all know what the other option is:-(
