What do you even say to someone when they ask “What happened to your knee?”. I never know how to respond because it’s just genetics but if I say that they always start profusely apologizing for asking!

    Just get increasingly off the rails: I didn’t eat my vegetables. I lost a fight with a chicken. I lost my kneecap in a bet.

    I am really bad at lying so I just say I have a joint disease because it’s the easiest true thing for people to understand

    I used to say my joints are loose, which they sre, and I’ll say I have EDs. It was easier to explain, than: It’s a connective tissue disorder, and so on..

    I just say i injured it or that it hurts. Usually people dont have a good follow up after that

    When they start apologizing, “I say don't be! I love educating people and spread of awareness.” (but only say that is you do) If not, or I a not in the mood, I would say, “oh, you know, shit happens” usually, I get a laugh as they drop it.
