I think we have all come across people who don’t have BI who can’t understand what it’s like. I had a not so nice talk with a woman who attends the same BI group as I do.
I had spoken to man who runs the group about rides as I like them and he said he did and would love to do a trip to somewhere like Alton towers, but is aware not everyone would be able/want to go there and obviously after BI some may not be able to go on fast rides. So he told me if I wanted to go I should ask people at the group obviously thinking who could/couldn’t go such as 1 woman in wheel chair and few with mobility problems wouldn’t manage so don’t ask them. But others such as myself and others would be able to.
So I asked someone this week who would like a trip to somewhere like Alton towers and this woman heard and obviously didn’t like the idea and said if I would go on rides and do all the walking I do I can’t have much of a BI I’ve no idea how anyone can’t have much of a BI you either have one or you don’t and everyone recovers at different speeds and is effected differently. This woman seems to think everyone is or should be effected in same way. She gets tired easily and avoids much physical things such as long walks. Plenty from the group does manage to do a lot of walking and running but this woman seems to think anyone who can manage more than her doesn’t have much of a BI. Luckily I just laughed it off and didn’t get bothered by it. I think her comments show more about herself than anyone else just showed how little she knows about BI
I actually wish I had thought to point out it just shows how little she understands about BI and seen what she had to say.
