Oh boy, do I know what you mean. It was my HUSBAND that caused

I honestly do not know what advice to give....Be very matter-of-fact about your situation with a "let's talk about something else now" attitude, I suppose. And, remember that they do care about you.

Hints for dealing with others would be good
