We all know how much we hate being told that you are looking well when...
A) you are feeling rubbish
B) you know you are overweight and bloated and none of your clothes fit
C) you have acquired a round face and three double chins, and scrawny hair
D) we are on these drugs for years, and are unlikely to come off them all and be completely cured
I can't find a happy medium between being a health bore, or saying something vague that is completely untrue. The latter can mean that I'm asked to do something far beyond my energy levels, and then regarded as a wimp because I've opted out!
