How Do You Respond When Someone Tells You "you Just Have A Low Pain Tolerance! Don't Be Such A Baby."

I usually, in a nice way tell them they are free to have their opinion , but until you have walked just a few hours in my shoes with the electric type shock pain shooting thru their hands and fingers, while dealing with joints that are stiff and don't want to bend and all the while have migraines day after day and have to function on a daily basis with out pain meds because you are allergic.....only then do you have the right to judge me.

My answer is think about the aches and pains you get with the flu then triple it on a good day and multipy 50 times on a bad day.

I always reply with, I gave birth to 3 large babies with NO pain relievers, and I have teeth drilled without shots to numb. I have a very high tollarence to pain, but that is pain with a purpose and an end. The constant nagging extreem pain. No no one can just suck that kind of pain up. Sometimes when Im flaring and my body decides to say make a foot feel like its broke, I sometimes even bruise. So No Im not a baby. Walk a day in my shoes, then we will see what you think.
