...feeling sad Rosie @roskw

Friends & family

So I have this friend that always points out people will lovely skin. I joked that she would skin them if she could and her response to me was “NOT YOU! You have the worst skin I’ve ever seen”. It’s stuck with me all this time.

Of course. It made me want to physically slap her when she said that to me.

Rosie, this friend of yours...What does she look like? apart from being a clear skin? How can she look down on you for having P when I'm sure she's not perfect herself? Yes, I'd slap my her if she was my friend as that is humiliating what she said to you. Life revolves around living, not around disability and your friend should know that. You do not need to be reminded about your P. You need to be uplifted and inspired by your so called friend.
Look at yourself in the mirror and say "Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it". Do not let your friend bring you down. You seem like a very intelligent lady so use your intelligence to quiet her loose tongue.

The simple way to stop her saying stuff like that is a hard punch in mouth.

Now That a great idea :)

Hi Michelle thank you :) you always know what to say. You are a very wise and fantastic lady and the people that know you in real life are lucky souls. I am generally a positive person but sometimes negativity can creep in. I have actually had a talk with her explaining how it made me feel and I tried to make her understand but it must have gone in one ear and out the other. I am a few years older (she’s 19) and I guess realistically I shouldn’t stoop to her level. I always take each day as it goes.

This friend is short and chubby, hairy and she has an internal illness but I have never and will never put her down. Accepting people no matter what just makes life easier and it makes you a better person. It’s the personality of a person that matters the most.

Hi James thanks :) It’s what she would deserve considering I’m not the only one she’s put down

Linda @Linda1009

Is she truely a friend? A real friend would not say something that hurtful to you. A friend would know that you are sensitive about having this condition. Some people are just jerks and it sounds like your "friend" is a big one
