Does anybody have a standard answer to this particular statement?
When speaking to a new acquaintance for the first time, the topic of health (or lack thereof), often rears it's ugly head.
Then you happen to mention that you suffer from chronic RLS .... with their reply been something along the lines of, 'Oh yeah, I have that too, but I just put up with it for a while and eventually it goes away'.
It's about this time that it eventually, (but not surprisingly), dawns on me that they are totally clueless and completely uneducated with having absolutely no thorough understanding of the torture that we, as chronic RLS suffererers,
are forced to deal with, thru no fault of our own, on a daily basis.
I have been seriously trying to figure out what the appropriate reply would be, but I have come up empty.
I am afraid that anything I was to say in reply could seriously come across as being extremely pompous and/or arrogant.
I am assuming that most of you guys have been presented with this particular circumstance as well. Your ideas and comments would be greatly appreciated.
