Enough Already

image by cbicenhour

It has happened again. Well meaning, but clueless person calls. She tell me that she has a cure for all of my medical problems. She's relentless, I simply must pursue this. The conversation goes on for an hour. 

Since I love her, I don't hang up on her, or tell her what I really am thinking. Which is - For crying out loud - don't you think that I have considered this already? That I have talked to my doctor endlessly and spent literally days in front of my computer looking for an answer? That there is no cure for autoimmune disease, even though I wish with all my heart that your screwball idea would work? 

I spend the hour long phone call mumbling. Mmhmm. Thanks, I'll consider it. Nice of you to think of me. Glad it cured your co-worker's brother's neighbor. Sure thing. 

I know that she would not call if she didn't care about me.

Totally understand your viewpoint. Been there myself. I am thankful that they are trying to help me and think of me.
