Devastated.

This morning I had a phone call from a friend of mine it was nice to hear from someone, I don’t let a lot of people in on my life or my health, but she has been a friend for more than 30years.

It’s nice to do a good catch up, as we don’t usually talk much as life gets in the way, but we make sure to check in with a message saying “I love you” or “I miss you” every week and a phone call once a month.

She is a friend you can say anything too and feel comfortable with, well that’s what I thought. I’m so devastated. I never thought telling her something she would make fun of me for.

She asked me about my health and I had explained to her about my new condition CVG (Cutis Verticis Gyrata) and she had explained that she used to make fun of a boy in school with a scalp like mine, I said to her that’s really mean. She continued to say it was funny, I stated it’s not funny, your really mean.

Near the end of the conversation she thought it would be funny to call me the same things she use to call the boy in her school. I feel so heartbroken how can people be so cruel. I feel terrible having the condition in the first place, without people making fun of me especially the one you are meant to trust.

What do you do when people make fun?

  1. Do not dwell on this person’s comment and cut them from your life unless they apologize. Take care of you and keep writing. Tell us more about what you love to do in life. What are your ambitions? What do your kids love to do? What is it like living in Australia (I think that is where you are from?). I would love to know what you have done in your life. eg. where have you worked? How long have you been married? etc. Engage your audience to know you and not necessarily your disease, although that is a huge part of you.Take care and remember God loves you no matter what you look like.

  2. It used to bother me a lot…. now I tend to say my peace and write about it and let it go. I have lost people by saying my peace but I refuse to just continually be hurt by people. Their acts and words are not my responsibility.

    1. Thanks for your reply, I’m not one who has the guts to speak my mind, which sucks when things like this happen. I wish I had the guts like you, but I’m going to not let it get to me this time. 🙂

  3. Jen, I’m so sorry you “friend” insulted you, and/or made fun of you. I’m sorry, but that’s not a friend in my books. That was really cruel.
    I personally don’t take shit from too many people. I tend to fight back if I’m challenged or bullied. If someone ever made fun of me the way your friend did, she would no longer be a friend of mine unless she apologized to you.
