I know it’s a little rough. You have stomach pains. You have cramps. It might come up in a conversation with a coworker if it’s really bothering you.
People who are ailing from things like a terminal illness, broken body parts, and any other condition under the medical rainbow don’t always work their illnesses into everyday conversation. Many of them approach life from a hermeneutic of wellness. Instead of taking every opportunity to outline a litany of medical tests and prescription drugs, they cherish the opportunity to go to the office, take stupid meetings, and talk about celebrity gossip.
So here’s what I learned: health issues shouldn’t be minimized, but it’s important to realize that it’s the least interesting among us who hijack a conversation and talk about health.
I’m no downer and neither are you. Let’s take some medicine and get on with the business of life.
