People asking if you are feeling better.



  • Whenever someone asks me about my back I give them the standard answer, "I'm pink, warm, upright, and mobile." That satisfies those people who ask as a matter of common courtesy. For those few who really want to know I'll give them more specific information. Since I don't want to come across as whiny, I only provide enough info to answer their questions.

  • I generally just say "stable" OR "unstable" while walking away.

    No one yet has the nerve to ask what the heck I mean.

    I might point out that my real friends don't ask me that particular question any more unless I have been sick with flu or cold recently.

    WE all have to do what works best for us.
