I want to vent briefly about unsolicited advice. In particular, unsolicited advice from people who have never experienced a major health crisis. I know some people have good intentions; however, it is annoying when people try to give me all these suggestions to “cure” me. I know there are some things that will help; however, not everything is a magic bullet.
Here’s an example…as mentioned previously, I am severely anemic. I’ve been anemic since I was a child. It is NOT due to iron deficiency, but that’s the first thing people say. “Girl, you need more iron.” News Flash!!! Don’t you think I would have taken that instead of going through much harsher procedures?! I just wish people would listen more and talk less.
