Made me smile😊

As we all know our diseases are very misunderstood. I was treating a patient yesterday when she asked why my hands were swollen so I tried to explain re auto immune diseases. Her reply was"" well you youngsters wouldn't get aches and pains if you aired your clothes properly""

I wouldn't mind --- but I'm 59!!!!!☺x

Not sure which is better, being called young at 59 or being offered such a great cure for RA!

True--- I should patent it ---- "" leave your undies on the maiden for an extra 24 hours and all your aches and pains will dissappear """. Better than any drugs!!😊😄x

Brought back happy memories. My very close friend who left us 2 years ago always said things like this. Clothes have to go in airing cupboard for 3 days. She use to flip when she saw me ironining a uniform to wear that day. Bless them. :)

That reminds me of my gran. She was a servant in a 'big house' when young. They used her bedroom to air their washing. She always blamed her RA on this fact. Poor gran.
