It has been exactly 1 year and 8 months since my gamma knife surgery and while my life is pretty much back to normal I still don’t feel 100% perfect. I forget things, I repeat myself, I get numbness and pain in my right side etc. I was hanging out with my best friend tonight, and I messed up on something I was trying to remember, and like usual to make a light hearted joke about it I said, “ah sh*t, it’s that damn brain again”. To my surprise, she replied ever so calmly, " you can’t use that excuse anymore… It’s been 2 years now".
I was shocked! I was so shocked that I didn’t say anything back in the moment. I just tucked my tail behind my legs and did absolutely nothing. But now, thinking back, I really wish I had corrected her and educated her on stroke and AVM recovery.
Do you guys suggest I leave it be? Or should I bring this up to her? How do you all handle insensitive people? I would love some insight!
