You know, ppl IRL can be the same way. It's jealousy, and that is all it boils down to. I've learned to not even mention Phen. When asked, I tell ppl that the doctor increased my thyroid meds (which is the TRUTH) and that I gave up a lot of things such as sweet tea and brownies! All the truth, I just left out how he gave me Phen because if they are too embarrassed to ask HOW you got it then they try to shoot down your success. And the ones that WILL ask how you got it start to bug you about how THEY can get it, like asking for the number to your doctor and stuff. I tell them I didn't ASK my doctor for it, it was HIS idea and he mentioned it to ME, which is the TRUTH!
