'What have you done?"... how to respond?
I need some help please. I have a disability which means I have to use 2 crutches to walk with.(Farley new 4 years and i'm 52) i work part time in a customer facing role. I get asked at least once a day "what have you done" or "should you be working?" . I find that it becomes upsetting depending on what kind of day I have had with my pain level's etc. If I respond saying It's personal people become offended. If I respond with I'm Disabled people become offended!!!. Why is it not offensive that they have asked me? How can I respond as to not offend the person who is offending me? They then try to justify themselves by saying I was just being kind. How is it kind to ask a disabled person what have you done?. I need a one line response to hopefully not offend and still keep my own spirits up. Any suggestions please xx
