Nothing. I just look sick. Oneday I was very healthy, happy and active when someone asked if I am sick I asked her if there is black circles she said no. Every day at work I have someone asking me if I am sick. And when I became sick but slight thing not big deal like having light headache or flu they think I am very extremely sick that the head send me home ☺️

I wonder if it’s because you’ve recently lost weight? Or perhaps you’re a skinny person? Skinny people or people with paler skin tend to get referred to as sickly sometimes, and it’s not because they are in fact sickly appearing but because people associate being chubby with being healthy.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
