    Isn't it impolite to share on fb what happens when a lactose intolerant person consumes lactose? It would certainly come under TMI lol.

    Just to add to my previous post (I thought of this while I was making dinner as a decent example of this weird behaviour).

    I had a miscarriage many years ago, one idiot said "At least you don't have a sick kid", another said "At least you know what it is like to be pregnant". I feel for both of these people, having trouble having kids is truly gruelling and terrible (I know that for a fact, it took us 8 years to conceive again), and having a sick kid would be heart breaking. Neither of these people took my feelings into consideration though (both brought up the subject with me too , I don't really like to talk about it because it was so devastating). They didn't offer support or help in any way and personally it made me feel worse so whatever they got out of it I hope they enjoyed it .

    I really try my best to not make someones 'vent' or cry for help or...whatever u all it about 'me'... Smetimes i find myself doing it, but not deliebrately. More like "oh that sucks so bad, i know what u mean, my child does this!"

    Not as competition or whatever but as a way to let the person know they arent alone or whatever.

    Bt some people are buttheads and invalidate your feelings because they have it worse. To me thats bullsh1t... Its like for example

    "we just found out that little quazimodo is allergic to 85% of food"
    "well at least he can eat 15% of foods, my kid only eats cheese, he poo's out dairy rocks"


    Wait....


    What?


    *shrug* im a rambling lizard queen tonight... I dont even have a point?

    I have come across quite a few people IRL like this. I always try to be compassionate and sympathetic towards others and I am always happy for someone to vent to me. But it does irk me when someone tries to belittle my feelings by saying they have had it much worse .

    I have a friend that I refer to as my 'me too, but...' Friend. Everything I've done/been through, she has done/been through worse. ultimately though, I feel for her that she is craving the attention she gets by out doing everyone, so I tend to just lend a sympathetic ear and turn to other friends when I am in need of support.

    Is it meant to mean crazy? None of my friends do that, but I have seen "cray" and assumed it was a typo. Sometimes I don't hit keys hard enough on my phone and find it hard to go back to change it.

    I've never really been around folks who 'talked themselves up'. It's not really part of Australian culture: tooting your horn is seen as an ugly trait. (it's more an American thing).

    I think the 'whoa me, I have it worse than you' thing is a natural by-product of getting older. You should hear my nanna whinge about all her health problems and whatever else.

    I agree with pp's sharing your negative experience to get help or help someone else is different from doing it beause you're self centred and want to 'one up' someone.
