I have been sick for 11 years and thought I had heard all the horrible things someone could say regarding my 'invisible' illness. And yet . . . I was explaining ME to a co-worker. I informed her of my symptoms and how difficult my life was. I told her how often I get really sick, the huge number of doctors visits, the feeling like I have the flu everyday, etc. My co-worker smiled at me and said I was lucky. I leaned on my cane and with some caution asked why. She said that me being sick is a blessing from god because I now know the pain of Jesus. This makes me blessed and I should embrace being sick. I should work on enjoying being sick and not on symptom relief or eventually a cure. She said I was LUCKY! Do you think I showed too much restraint by not thwacking her with my cane? Anyway, this response was a new one on me. Odd what people will say when they find out you have a chronic disease.
