Is it normal to feel annoyed by the language that some people use to communicate with you? How am I best to go about communicating that I don’t like certain types of language with my family and friends?
A friend for example said to me the other week that I am so brave and then she compared my experience to that one time she had to get a blood test. My extended family also always uses the term battling which I am so against. The word battling to me is if dying is akin to failure.
I am curious to hear what other people have experienced in terms of language they don’t like during treatment?
