Why do you call me victim?

Why do you call me victim?

Anne MacDonald

“Hi, it’s Anne from Glasgow. Why do you call me victim? No one attacked me. Many people live with this condition. We’d rather not have it, but we just get on with it. Language is not difficult. Treat us with respect as we will you. We all have a responsibility for the impact our words have. We should aim to inform not inflame. You may have a column to write, a book to plug, politician to impress, whatever. But please remember, this is real life for us. None of you know the shifting sands we walk on daily. None of us know what is ahead. Seize the day and be kind to each other. Thank you.”
