So, I've got this co-worker whom I'm "friends" with...not one of those people I'd consider my best-friend but she and I know alot about each other. She knows that I've gone to a pdoc and the medication that I've been put on. That was just this past week...so obviously I'm still swinging thru my moods like a trapeze artist! She doesn't understand much about BP and makes comments like, "You need to take a pill or something", or "Are you OK, are you sure your medication isn't making you bitchy?!"... I told her that she was to never make comments to me like that again...and she just looked at me, like, "She's lost her damn mind...".... Question is, how do I get her to understand that while it may be "humorous" to her to say things like that, by saying them, I get visions of smacking her across the face...I'd never do it, but it makes me irrate! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
