erhaps, I am just sensitive. I can admit that. And most pd the time I do not think about my little friend ( I named him blobbo) because he ( it) is small and probably will not do anything in my lifetime. Probably. But I am not a fortune teller ( my ball is in the shop), so who knows? But this is not the point necessarily of my irritation,
Recently, a family member of mine got on this health kick ( which is good) and started talking about that “little yellow magic pill,” which have heard about. However, it got a little out of control when she said, " Remember when you thought you had that thunderclap? You thought you some sort of a brain thing but you didn’t?" Um…1) it was a thunderclap and 2) I do have one. She proceeds to tell me that because I am overweight that is why I got the aneurysm. ( according to Dr. Internet of course). I guess she hung onto some fact that fatty tissue ( not that you are fat) can help cause one. I guess. My doctor never told me that, but what the heck, I never asked.
I tried to explain that though mine was small, it was in a delicate area and it was difficult play with. ( a wide necked pericollsal ) I explained a lot of times those are trauma based and since I have had 3 major concussions,( two losing consciousness, one having to be sowed up) that there could be a high probability that its trauma based- not because you ate at McDonald’s based. There are people who jog 3 miles a day, eat protein bars and are perfectly healthy and drop dead from one of these suckers. They are the silent killer. Most of us,unless they become problematic do not know they even exist.
I was told by another family member ( after going to Dr. internet) it was no big deal people has things in their bodies all the time. True. And perhaps because I had the flu and major headaches for a week I am a little sensitive, but here is the thing:
I do not care if is small - I do not care if it is doing nothing at all. Maybe it is just hanging out playing Bingo with my other arteries. But still it is there. And I get tired of people not respecting the fact that maybe my feelings are valid. Most f the time I do not even think about it. When I started my job ( which I quit because it was so much strain on me-I could not function) I had to fill out a hard that had health issues and so I put it on there. I mean if i suddenly fall down flat, it is a good thing to know. But apparently, i am just being paranoid.
