Topic: RE: Just venting to those that'll totally get it
I went to lunch today with my daughter, her fiance, my husband, my mother and my mother's longtime friend (who I've known since I was 2-1/2). My mother's friend kept going on and on about how wonderful it was that I had the surgery because I was clearly miserable before and was slowly killing myself and wasn't it just awful being like that? Ok I was miserable and I'm incredibly glad I had the surgery, but over and over again she kept referring to how bad I looked before (in a nutshell). At one point, I nearly said, "Yes I get it. I was a huge f*ing cow. Can we move on already?" I'm sure she meant it in the nicest way, but that didn't make it hurt any less. I see this woman about every 3-4 years, so chances are I won't run into her again for quite a while, and so it will be a non-issue for me after today. I just needed to vent and get it out of my system. This is the first semi-negative comment I've had since my surgery 18 months ago. I thought I'd be immune to stuff like this so far out since I'd not had anything negative said before. Apparently, I was wrong.
