It’s funny how we all deal with illnesses or injuries differently, regardless of how minor or severe they may be.
I recently was part of a conversation with a couple of folk where one was talking about how they’d been bothered by a particular ailment for about 4 months , and how “awful” it was “having to cope with this every morning”. The ailment in question is nothing serious, and is something which many suffer from, and in fact I have had since I was very young.
I made no comment when this conversation was going on, but inside I’m was thinking to myself this person really didn’t know what “awful” was! I certainly would not consider my ailment “awful” and from the detail provided by the other sufferer, their ailment is less severe than mine.
I’m am definitely not looking for sympathy or anything as I have never really considered this ailment to be particularly “awful”, just a bit uncomfortable and annoying at times – The whole conversation just reminded me just how different we all are, and how we all feel and react differently to situations and circumstances we face in life.
Thank goodness we’re not all the same!
