things you shouldn't say
From a dentist last week: "Oh, you're life is going to be so tough with Sjogren's. You will have horrible dental disease, sores in your mouth. It really will suck. And you're so young."
From an ophthalmology aide today: "You are so young to have such a devastating diagnosis."
These comments remind me of when Kael was in ICU a few years ago, recovering from a major aortic repair. From his nurse, "WOW, they really filleted you open!"
Come on people..If you are in a health care field, let's try and be a LITTLE positive.
So thankful for my family, encouraging friends, medicine that helps me feel much better and the blessings God showers on me each day.
I'm hoping to come up with a witty come back. Any suggestions?
