When i was young i was taught the old verse sticks and stones will brake my bones but names will never hurt me. I then become an adult with PPMS, Osteoporosis, Endometriosis and menopause . IN my thirty year marriage my husbands sister has come out with many a hurtful comment not just aimed at me , however her latest was that as a disabled person i am a second class person and i need to get use to it i know if i retaliated she would scream and shout like when i was trying to set a laptop up for my brother in law who has cerebral palsy and she said dont bother as he isn’t capable (he was) when i said enough she called me a f@@@ bitch, so i have made the deciision to no longer be in her company, life is much easier. My brother is getting married soon and i offered to drive him and his future wife out to visit my aunt , my sister found out and made the comment why was i not included when i said it was not about you she put the phone down, now she has also said look at you looked after yourself all your days and you are now bu@@@ i drink like a fish and i am fine.
These people think they have the right to throw insults , but when i walk away or answer them back i am the one with the issue.
Sticks and stones yes on one occassion but not constant
