    What I asked you (to paraphrase myself) is why you don't allow others to express the pain they feel just because you believe yours to be worse?

    You didn't ask.I don't believe my pain is worst than anyone else.My thing is not much can be done about my pain and I except it.How ever if a person who has pain that can be cured they should get it done rather than do nothing and complain about it.

    There aren't a lot of other people in the world who feel like all the skin from below their neck has been scraped off, they've been dunked in alcohol, every bone in their back sticks out through their skin, plus a bunch of other painful sensations, and are quadriplegic on top of that, but I only discuss this in proper venues. Someone asks how I am, I say "okay." It's polite. People really don't want to hear details when they ask how you are (unless you're at a doctor's office), and you don't want their details.
    Nobody needs to hear "it could be worse." It could just as well be better, but are people going to say to a quad, "You could be better?" Then they shouldn't say, "It could be worse."

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    Your sure right Alan, people may ask how you are but they really don't want to know and they don't care. Thats why I always say I'm fine, even when I'm hurting so bad that I could cry, not very manly I know. but then they say "IT could be worse! we for sure know it!!! I would rather they not ask!

    I don't give details about how I am to others. People are usually just being polite to ask each other, "How are you?"

    Yes, I get the strange comments. Everything from, "I admire you" to "You look very injured. What happened?" to "God can use you" to "I know what it's like. I had to use a chair after surgery" to "It could be worse" and on and on.

    Some days I'm better at dealing with the comments than others. Lately I'm better at letting the innocuous comments roll. I continue rolling while letting the comments roll. I'm not obligated to give a gimp monologue about my body to anyone, especially those I don't know.

    It seems cyclical, though. I'm sure I'll be annoyed as hell by what strangers say soon enough.

    Duge, I'm sorry you're being bothered by the comments. Those kinds of statements to us seem to come in waves.**Hugs.**
