Have you tried my magic beans?

You don't have to phrase it all sappy like this, but something along these lines would be superb.

I feel like that’s the one thing that I haven’t heard to try yet. Here’s a list of things that I’ve heard that still baffle me to this day.

  • Have you tried eating more fiber?
  • Should you be eating that?
  • You should think about going vegetarian.
  • I have this one friend with IBS and…
  • Are you contagious?
  • But you don’t look sick!
  • But you were fine yesterday!
  • Maybe you should try going vegan.
  • Aren’t you lactose intolerant?
  • Laying around all day won’t solve anything.
  • Are you sure you aren’t contagious?
  • Don’t let your disease control your life!
  • You need to get out more.
  • You should probably rest more.
  • You should exercise more.
  • Have you tried vitamins?
  • You could go out yesterday, why not today?
  • It’s all in your head. Just push through it.
  • You should lose some weight maybe.
  • Maybe you should gain some weight.
  • You’re too young to be dealing with these problems!
  • At least you don’t have cancer.
  • I get stomach aches too sometimes.
  • So what can you eat?
  • Stop stressing out so much!
  • So what exactly is wrong with you?
  • Pain medication is habit forming, you know.
  • Have you tried Ibuprofen?
  • Get well soon!
  • Are you better yet?
  • Does it hurt when I do this? *Pushes stomach*
  • You should try yoga.

This was just the tip of the iceberg of what I could think of at the top of my head. Yes, I have had random strangers grab my stomach! It’s super bizarre how I can relate to a pregnant woman when I have zero plans on becoming one myself.
