  • When someone comments on my cough…

    I think we all probably have a noticeable cough, and especially to outsiders lookin –er — listening in. I’ve found myself feeling all sorts of emotions when someone comments on my cough. It’s happened everywhere: in class, at the gas station, at the gym, on a date. I’ve learned to process my thoughts when I hear the comments, and lately I’ve felt that it’s become an opportunity. An opportunity to educate. Expose my disease and give as much information as the space in time allows me to.

    Maybe the person on the receiving end will hear me out? Maybe I’ll learn something new?

    I don’t know, but this is my approach for right now, and it sits well with me. How do y’all handle these situations?
