Why do people say this? If they say, 'It's nice to see you looking better today,' I can cope with it but when they say, 'You look really well!' I want to slap 'em and say, 'Well you don't know how hard I'm working to achieve the look.'
It happened a couple of days ago and I know the comment was meant to give me a boost so I said, 'Thank you, it's nice to know that.' when what I really wanted to say was, 'I've just started another chest infection, you silly person, so how can I look 'really well'?
I catch sight of myself in the mirror and I see my Gran looking back at me - not even my Mum! I don't look well at all. I don't want to look unwell, but that's the reality of life at the moment so what's with the pointless comments? They other thing is it almost feels as though they are saying, 'You look ok to me so what are you moaning about?'
Forgive me folks - just a feeling a bit fed up with the world today! Three days into the infection - all will seem better tomorrow! Three cheers for antibiotics and prednisilone.
