With Pain Awareness Month fast approaching, I thought I would kick off my first post about what comments someone in pain should totally ignore. We have all been there – you are feeling awful and in terrible pain and yet you get a comment that will make you feel as if your pain could not possibly be real. Some of the classic comments which you should totally ignore are –

  1. We all get more aches and pains as we get older.
  2. I think I have that, too.
  3. If you get more sleep, you will feel better.
  4. You look to well to be sick.
  5. At least it’s not life threatening.
  6. You just need to exercise more.
  7. It’s all in your head.
  8. You don’t look sick.
  9. Have you tried?
  10. Does that condition really exist?
  11. Tell me about it!
  12. I hope you will feel better soon.
  13. If you lose weight it might help.
  14. Are you better yet?
  15. You were obviously overdoing things then?
  16. If you focused on something else you would feel better.
  17. Everyone has bad days.
  18. You should stop doing…
  19. It could be worse.
  20. It can’t hurt that bad.
