This was posted on a board I go to, and I think it's great! I hear comments like these all the time (having to do w/ infertility). Doesn't it sound ridiculous when you put in this context? So why can't people be more sensitive?
If we were paralyzed instead of infertile, would people say this to us??
As soon as you buy a wheelchair, I bet you'll be able to walk again!
Boy, I wish I were paralyzed. I get so tired of walking, and if I were paralyzed I wouldn't have to walk everywhere!
My cousin was paralyzed, but she started shaving her legs in the other direction and she could walk again. You should try that.
I guess God just didn't mean for you to be able to walk.
Oh, I know exactly how you feel, because I have an ingrown toenail.
Sorry, we don't cover your treatment for paraplegia because it's not a life-threatening illness.
Oh, I have just the opposite problem, I have to walk walk walk everywhere I go.
You're just trying to hard, relax and you'll be able to walk.
You're SO lucky...Think of the money you save on shoes!
I don't know why you are being so selfish! You should at least be happy that I can walk!!
I hope you don't try those anti-paralyzation drugs. They sometimes make people run too fast and they get hurt.
Look at those people hiking ... doesn't that make you want to hike?
Do you want to rub my legs? That might help you walk and give you luck.
Take a vacation and you'll walk!
I just ran a marathon and won. Let me tell you all about it and show you my medal and tell you how everyone is doting on me!
Here is a special walking shoe pendant. If you put it under your pillow then it will help you walk. Three other people who limped because of sprains and were so worried are walking just fine now.
You are just too worried about never walking, it's all in your head! If you stop thinking about it so much, it will happen.
