But, you don’t look sick

This page is dedicated to all of the insensitive things that others say to people living with GP.  I am shocked that some of the statements below actually came from Health Care Providers who are the people that should have the most sensitivity to this issue.

  • “But, you don’t look sick!”
  • “I sure wish I could have a disease like yours and lose some weight!”
  • “You are young so you can be hopeful that some day by the time you are old there will be a new med that might help.”
  • “He’s on so many prescriptions, isn’t something helping?”
