I’ve been fortunate that everyone close to me has been very kind and supportive. It’s those that aren’t close to me that have said insensitive things. The worst one I got was when a friend of a friend asked if I was planning to have kids. I told her I hadn’t been able to carry to term and had had 2 miscarriages, likely due to incredibly poor sleep over the 5.5 years I’d had narcolepsy and the resulting hormonal instability of my body. She then said “well wait til you have kids, then you’ll really be tired”. She’s an RN so I figured she’d be more sensitive to the fact that I just told her all that….nope. I didn’t even try to explain to her that she doesn’t even know what tired is compared to PWN. Like talking to a brick wall.
