I usually say "Why, thank you, you made me feel better!"

I have been told you don't look sick also. My reply is "thank you" as I am trying to keep moving. God has blessed me with another day. I told one friend that the blessing of this disease is, We know to live each and every day to the fullest, don't waste time doing things you really don't want to do". I wish I had learned that a lot sooner and her reply was "you have given me reason to rethink my time". So good does come out of this.

Sometimes I want to say, you do not look stupid, but see how looks can fool you ?

It is left better unsaid because they have no idea. No idea what you are feeling and they can't fathom what it is like.
