Frank, if you’re reading this, you’ve been banned from making any more comments. When I say stop, I mean stop.
My Uncle Fred and Aunt Lisa came over yesterday. It was the first time they had seen me since the…event. They gave me all the usual “older relative” stuff… “Oh, look how you’ve grown…I remember when you were this tall…were you in an accident? It’s barely noticeable at all!”
As nice as it should be to have somebody TRYING to treat me like a normal person…do they have to try so HARD? It’s so obviously insincere. It’s patronizing, and it just makes me feel worse.
I don’t know…I’m starting to get a little cynical. Anyone else out there ever felt this alone?
