Being Ill

Being ill intermittently is no fun. And snarky comments akin to, “What? Ill again?!” don’t help. In fact, very much needed but oft unsaid comeback similar to, “Get lost you pretentious prick!” Someone whose immune system is perfect (or close to) will never understand what it means to have one that is deficient, that cannot fight off all diseases, allergies and illnesses.

Case in point:

Mad the mistake of mentioning I was ill-ish again to my colleague. Their response: “Again?!”

My riposte: “Back to work.” (Aka, Stuff you!)

Btw, no, wasn’t after sympathy or understanding. This was a passing comment in a longer conversation. (^_^)
