On my forehead

Postby princess » Sat Nov 01, 2008 9:56 pm

I have this problem, well its not such a problem to me, but you see i have 'talk to me' tatooed onto my forehead.
You cant see it but im sure some people do see it.
I sit on a bus and folk talk to me.
I stand in a queue and i get someones problems
It happens everywhere, all over the place.

It used to really get me down, me that worked in Social Work :oops: - then i spoke to my Minister about this why does it happen. I have all these people talking personally to me, they give me their life story and all their problems.

I guess im a good listener eh

This very kind Minister said you know ? you have a gift and you should be happy to have it. There are people who never have visitors or never see anyone for weeks at a time, they need people like you - its a gift dont hate it.

so there you are i now know i have 'talk to me on my forehead' but do i care no not at all.

After all now i am the one who is in the house, day after day, unless i have someone to go out with who can drive - and i know that i would be happy for anyone to talk to me now.

anyone else the same?

I'm exactly the same, but why does it always seem to be the er... well... slightly odd people who always talk to me?
I always get the weirdo or the old drunk! :lol:

I guess I dont really mind & I hate it when some people completely ignore someone for looking or acting a little strangely, so I will respond if I'm spoken to- even if its just with a carefully polite distracted smile & nod.

I think if you are a naturally empathetic person it must show.

Couldn't agree more. When I was a pub manager I used to get people telling me all sorts of things... half of which I didn't want to know :shock: :D

I've still got the sign on my forehead and I'm often quite glad of a chat these days, but like Corinne, there are some very strange people out there who think I'm their best mate.

Strange illness this, we can all relate to being glad when someone calls so we can have a chat, I am just glad I have talk anytime on my phone or the bill would be unthinkable :? but there is also days when I just want my own company :roll: when I was fit I also had the SIGN :!: but always enjoyed listening or to chat, but I do find now that I can only go out in wheelchair that I have suddenly become invisible :cry: seems to me that us caring people that are the ones afflicted with fibro. :cry:

That would seem to agree with the people who think there is a hormonal component to this illness. Maybe that's why people with FM are the more careing type of person.

I just have to agree with Corinne about attracting any passing weirdo's, my DH thinks it's hilarious how they always talk to me. The latest was when I was collecting a suitcase Id leant to my son, I was wheeling it back to my car and this odd looking lady came up and asked where Id brought the wheels for my suitcase !! I told her Id brought it like that, I dont think she believed me lol.

My daughter has the same problem I think. She was dancing in a club on Saturday night and couldn't shake off the local weirdo who kept trying to put his arms round her for a dance , she couldnt get rid of him lol
