hope this isn’t too left field: how much and to what extent do you share information about your health condition with family and friends? My mom lives several states away and about came unglued when I told her I was in the hospital in February. I haven’t told her about getting very sick again and awaiting specialist evaluation in Denver. Not sure how to explain what’s going on without scaring the pants off of her.
I think I’m also going to be better about masking when going out in spring too. I recently discovered I’m allergic to lots of tree types, especially birch and there are entire hillsides covered in them (especially around my favorite fishing hole! Grr. And they are my favorite tree type). Just wondered if you had good 1-2 liners sayings for explaining the mask (allergens, avoiding infection and perfumes). I was just gonna throw my allergist under the bus and say doctor’s orders ! Or I’m studying to be a ninja! 😛
