Candy Posted June 11, 2003 Share Posted June 11, 2003 I was actually thinking of putting this on the humor board because if you can't at least try to laugh about this stuff your probably in trouble. I'm thinking we should put together a list of things NOT to say to LC survivors (or current fighters of LC). Believe it or not both these remarks were made to us by very close relatives recently (and NO they weren't even joking in poor taste): "We want to take some pictures because you may not be around next year" "Its like the weather, you can't change it, just accept that and move on. You can't get depressed about things you can't change you just have to accept them. " The first remark was made to my husband and I didn't hear it first hand. If I had I don't think I would have been able to keep my mouth shut. The second was made to me and I had a few remarks to make about it but not as much as I would have wanted. Just the fact that someone would compare my husband's illness with the WEATHER really p***ed me off! Besides, coming from someone that I crave support from, well.... Am I thin-skinned or are they STUPID remarks? And I could go on with a long list of remarks made by people who just don't think. Just venting, but I'll bet we could publish a list under the guise of self-help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
