Forgive me for posting about the coronavirus when so many are wanting an escape but… well, this week it has been hard to escape in my personal life. Other than the fact that friends have been stricken and it’s basically a conversational point everywhere, I was really upset to see a young man essentially “mocking” mask-wearing in a store the other day.
I vocalized my frustrations in a vent-on-video I posted on my personal Instagram, but I was so concerned with how one can trivialize something so serious for so many?
Maybe I’m being sensitive (I definitely can be), but I wondered: Has anyone ever made “light” of your Cystic Fibrosis or illness in your life? Did you discuss it with them or let it slide?
I normally am a HUGE fan of joking about symptoms or being silly with doctors and staff, but when does the line between “making light” and “reckless and cruel” get crossed?
