People asking if you are feeling better.



  • Whenever someone asks me about my back I give them the standard answer, "I'm pink, warm, upright, and mobile." That satisfies those people who ask as a matter of common courtesy. For those few who really want to know I'll give them more specific information. Since I don't want to come across as whiny, I only provide enough info to answer their questions.

  • me of a line that my Dad would say when he was asked how ya doing today.

    His reply was "better then some, worse then others"

    That answer usually left people scratching their heads.

  • I generally just say "stable" OR "unstable" while walking away.

    No one yet has the nerve to ask what the heck I mean.

    I might point out that my real friends don't ask me that particular question any more unless I have been sick with flu or cold recently.

    WE all have to do what works best for us.
