Just been reading "what strangers expect" blog and wondered if anyone has any good retorts for strangers and the comments they give me.
Basically I have limited voice due to COPD and coughing. I sound ok to MY ears but other people think I am whispering or have a really bad cold! As part of my job I have to speak to people on the phone and am often told I sound terrible; shouldn't be at work; whats wrong with you and so on. I just never know what to say but get fed up with comments!! Sometimes I say "I have severe asthma" but other times I just don't know what to say. People can be so insensitive yet I have to say when I am using my mobility scooter I tend not to get comments. Although some people look straight at me and then proceed to walk in front of me! Some people are strange.LOL.
Any suggestions about what I could say - both serious and comical gratefully received!
