A Word of Wisdom to My Family

So today my parents called to ask me about my health. I've had a lot of testing and doctor's appointments lately. I was happy to tell them that we are getting problems worked out and that I'm doing very well. I wasn't really that interested in talking about details on the phone. Thank goodness, because after I had given a relatively short explanation, my Dad decided it was time to inform me that I was on speaker phone, and that other family members were listening in. :S

So to my family: If you talk to Mom and Dad, make sure you aren't on speaker phone if you have anything private to say!!

Hi D,

That is family for you! It has happened to me too and, there's no point on telling them to do otherwise *nodding*.

I am glad everything is ok with your health though :D.

You are always on speaker phone when you call them---always.

I'm glad you are following through with your health issues. I think one should never let them slide by. I have learned to be persistent if you don't get things resolved and to get second opinions if necessary. I let things slide and endured suffering in silence until it was almost too late.

Yes, they ALWAYS have it on speaker phone, and are a little miffed-looking when my family calls me there and I take it off. :0) I take it off anyway.
Glad you are doing better.
