Hey there. Was anyone else with an illness – or not – told to put on a good face, and save the unwell for home?
I was, not unkindly, and I think it was – is – one of the reasons I do so well. But, man, there have been times when it was annoying.
How about you? Were you told to “buck up” or “not let others see weakness, it only gives them something to use against you”? Others with illnesses have shared advice they’ve received. If you didn’t hear it, do you wish you had? When?
