I love that perspective, V - thanks

And thanks, PF. I'm feeling much better now.

Well, yeah! You got some blood on now! I wish all fatigue problems could be fixed that easy! I'm so glad you are feeling better, it does kinda creep up on you, it's not like there's bells and whistles going off when your Hct goes low.

Do any of you have personal experience dealing with a bi-polar person? I need to talk to someone who is personally involved. My husband is bi-polar and I need some help.

I feel for you, this is not an easy thing to deal with. Feel free to PM me and I can help a little.

When you begin a sentence with, "No offence meant, but..." you fully intend to offend.

Blowing off a little steam right now. I can't go into details, and it doesn't matter anyway. Just a know-it-all person I know who should think a little before opening his mouth.

I read one time that when someone says something rude to you, you should act like you didn't hear them and ask them to repeat it. Maybe they will realize how mean they sound.

He knew. It was intentional. In fact he said it twice for emphasis. This was more than a silly slip of the tongue, it was more of a possible friendship altering thing.

So sorry that happened to you .. I've been on the receiving end of that statement before and it's not fun. Sometimes people think they are "helping" when they really have no clue the damage they've done. I hope things work out for you.
