i take it as a compliment tbh Joker, i think its like i must be doing better than i thought if these people cant see that i’m unwell,
I think i’d probably say ‘you dont look that bad yourself’ or something, i think its nice. but you are obviously in there for a reason and just bc they cant see it on the surface doesn’t mean its not there.
she must think you are ok, i met my long term gf on the ward, we had a lot of good times but she is in there for a reason, what do you know about her?
I’m with @Resilient1. It’s kind of a compliment and means you’re presenting very well. I mean wouldn’t the opposite be worse if you thought you were doing well and all the other patients were telling you were sick? When people tell you they think nothing is wrong with you just simply tell them the truth. Tell them you are aware that you look and sound well but you are really sick.
Hm…sorry you are troubled by your fellow patients.
I was in a closed ward once, for the most severe patients. A lawyer stood waiting near the nurses office. I walked up there to get meds and he asked: “you are the doctor, I presume?” It brightened my day, to be honest. I just came in mute and catatonic a day or two before.
Do see it like a compliment. But coming from people who are sick, and without a clue about your illness or medication need.
