So sometimes people say things to us that they don't seem to realise who hurtful they are and how they stay with us.
I have had the following:
You're going to bed already? it's only 19.30? (Yes but I have been up since 7am trying to pretend I have 'normal' energy levels) - Family member...
Its only round the corner it wont take 2 mins to walk there. (but I have already walked past the limit that is comfy for me) - Family member
You did it last time (that was then and this is now, today I just simply can't do it, I cant tell you why but I cant) - Family member
You need dumping on a desert island where there are no take aways (thanks, i'm suffering with depression, I have come to you for help) - Doctor
What off hand comments have been made to you that stick? could be from a anyone in your life, how did it feel?
