Can you remember who you were, before chronic illness changed your life?
SERIOUSLY?!?! are you flecking kidding me? What an insensitive question! Of course I can remember! Some days it's hard as hell not to think of anything else. I'm reminded constantly I'm different now and my life and body will never be the same again. Do I remember? Damn right I do! Do I wish I could forget? Yeah some days I do.
Has someone ever asked you that question? I've been asked and it hurt! It hurt a lot! I've heard many other insensitive and hurtful comments over the years and it leaves me thinking that some people are just a special kind of stupid.
