Coping with unkind comments.
I'm fed up with people making comments about how ill I look! I've been started on a new medication which is reducing the amount of pain I'm in but does make my eyes look very heavy. Three people told me today that I "look awful', 'have junkie eyes' and I was asked jokingly if I was hungover! I find these comments really upsetting as I would never say that to anyone! How do other people deal with comments like these? I just walk away and slam the nearest door but end up angry for the rest of the day!
