...and people have ACTUALLY said "people would LOVE that problem of weight just falling off for no reason no matter what you eat!"
I'm with ravenwood. If someone says that comment on a bad day, I'll blow a gasket. In fact, last week I went to the hospital lab for my monthly blood work (vitamin levels, etc...) and the intake lady looked at my lab sheet and said, "oh, 'weight loss', that's a convenient problem...poor you!" And she was very sarcastic. I kindly replied, with a sweet smile, "I'm happy to switch places with you for a week and you can have my explosive, uncontrollable D, muscle aches, and chronic nausea after every meal."
I hope you get your answers. I'm not as shocked that an intake lady at the hospital was so insensitive about my medical issue as I am about a neurologist who clearly is uneducated. That's a scary realization!
