I live in a area where everyone knows everyone. I had to run by a Dollar General to pick up a few things and the Lady at the Register [ who i dont even know] asked me where my hat and long sleeve shirt was. Yes, i did run in without it on. Then she told me that like me she had a younger daughter and she hoped that i could at least make it until Lauren turned eighteen. For the most people dont really have a clue what Lupus is all about do they?

Omgosh! That's horrible. That would be called poor social skills in my field of work. Sheesh! Sorry Honey. That's her stuff not yours. Throw it out of your head and pray someone helps that poor woman (grin).

Oh brother. Some people just don't engage their brain before opening their mouth. I usually get the opposite "well at least you don't have anything serious" type of comment. Sorry you had to go through that. Even if you don't take it personally- and you shouldn't, its still a lousy thing to hear.

How about the, " But you don't look sick?"

You get these soft comments through all walks of life... i don't respond to good to outsiders because when i've spoken with people they try to be nosy and if they ask how you are and you mention your health the answer is, i would'nt have thought it oh you do look ok and i've actually told them to mind their bloody own business when i've seen them again because i live in an area where they're a right nosy bunch and less said fewer questions can be asked besides comments.

OMG Did you slap her? I think I would have had no choice! How did you handle it? I can't believe that people say the things that they do

Mari , i felt like choking her. My daughter and two grandchildren were with me,but thank God they didn't hear it. Our kids still haven't gotten over the loss of my mom year before last, so i try to not let them see how much pain i am in sometimes.

Really the only reason i did let it slide is because this lady seems to not be dealing with a full deck. Even though she can run a register, she still seems a little off. Then again we live just a 15 minute drive from Watts Barr Nuclear plant, and not being mean or anything but there seems to be quite a few folk here that seem a little odd. You never know. Lol

Oh I do love the humor here girls! All I can say Marla is if you start acting a bit odd we will know what caused it! Hey wait a minute! I grew up next to a nuclear power plant. So it wasn't the red licorice after all! Well that's a relief because I love that stuff!

Jeesh girl, i live right on the evacuation route. Every year we get a new calendar that has a full front page of what to do in case of a nuclear accident. Our local health dept is required to give us full supplies of Iodine pills to keep on hand. Every first wed of the month all of the sirens are set off around the lake and our home for testing. So you never really know what's in the water around here,LOL

You know, Jimmy Buffett wrote a song for people like this.
It goes something like-


Were you born an a-hole?

Or did you work at it your whole life?

Either way it worked out fine

'cause you're an a-hole tonight


You were an a-hole yesterday

You're an a-hole tonight

And I've got a feelin'

You'll be an a-hole the rest of your life...

My lovely daughter-in-law loves Jimmy Buffet....now I know why!

I dedicate this song to my SIL, who doesn't have a nice bone in her body. Thanks for making me laugh today, Rob!

Wait a minute there! Are you saying I'm a bit odd? How did I get into this conversation? I know I'm odd, but I've never lived near a nuclear plant. I grew up near some oil refineries, though and that might explain a few things.
LOL - funny conversation, girls.
Hugs,
Marla

Oh Marla you know I just wanted you to join in the fun! Your humor is awesome!

Now this seems like a good spotty say, all those years by the powerplant, may indeed be showing me fallout. Are you raft for this? Those chills and sweats I am still suffering with, are from something other than lupus or fibromyalgia. I had a special ultrasound done due to spotting. Here are the results, my wall of the uterus is very thick and course. My Overy is enlarged and I have fluid in my pelvis. I am being sent next week to a specialist to be checked for cancer.

So you know what I bought today? RED LICORICE! Lol
Okay somebody say something humorous here.

Monkey Butt! Sorry, that was the only thing I could think of, it always seems to get a laugh on Reba It also describes how I feel about your news. Wow, it just seems like our members are getting slammed with bad news right now. Please keep us informed about what happens next week. What day do you go in?

Monkey butt will do (giggle). I think the 5th. You would think I would know but I am awake so much from the sweats that I am falling asleep in my soup (grin). As soon as I hear I'll post some sick humor thread. All in all I am just so grateful to be off work to sleep all day, that I am totally relaxed. I am also grateful the cymbalta is calming my neck, shoulder and arm pains. The sweats are causing cramps in my calves now, so I drink lots of prune Juice and Gateraid.

Now that there prune juice does wonders for the colon issues! I can eat the red licorice now!
