Rude Comments

I was talking with this guy I work with today. He was asking me how my doc appointment went last week. I had my wrist, hip, and heart checked out. I have several heart problems and one of them is acting up. I told him that I have to go to a PT for my wrist and hip because of tenditis and arthritis. I also have psoriasis, which my doc thinks I may get psoritic arthritis (a bad form of arthritis that effects people with psoriasis). So I am prone to that, and one of the heart conditions I have my mother has and 2 of my 3 siblings also have. He asked me if we knew if the girls have the same problem. Then he said why did I have children if there was a chance for them to have the same problems as me. I thought that was SOOOO rude. It's none of his business. And none of them are life threatening. Yeah, I may have a higher risk of heart attack, but my heart problems alone aren't going to kill me. So if the girls DO end up with them, it's not that big of a deal. He just really rubbed me the wrong way.

LOL. Pammi always makes me smile. I wish I had such witty one-liners in my back pocket....

That guy is a jerk. Seems that there are many of them out there.

How did you appointments go? Are you feeling better?

What an a$s. I'm sorry, Tara. I had someone say something similar to that when I was pg with Michael because of health issues I was experiencing coupled with the fact that my mother was 26 when she passed. People can just be rude.

Yes, how are you feeling? How did your doc appt go?

LOL!!!!! Yes he does have kids. I really wish I had thought of this yesterday! The expression on his face would have been priceless!

Thanks for all of the concerns. I have several heart problems, but the one that is bothering me right now is called Postural Orthostatic Tachacardia Syndrome (however it is spells). POTS for short. Bascially, when I change positions my heart starts racing, my blood pressure drops (it's already too low to begin with), and I don't get enough blood to my brain. This causes me to get a MAJOR headrush which lately has been leading to everything going completely white and then I pass out (it actualy happened last week at daycare when I was dropping the girls off. Talk about embarassment. The poor teachers had NO idea what to do). So the fix for now is some meds and to increase my salt intake. Oh, but then that bothers my ear problem, which the non medicated fix for that is a low sodium diet. So it's a good time here! The ear problem causes vertigo, the heart problem passing out. Oh the joys. Not sure why it's acting up, but I think once I get it all under control I should be good again.

There is another reason I shouldn't have kids... asthma! I think I have more reasons NOT to have kids then have them. If that were the case, I think nobody would have kids.

And yes, he does have kids, and from what he says they don't make the best decisions, so he must have passed on his stupidity!
