On Friday, I went to my riding lesson. It was approx. 26 degrees Celsius-hot but not too bad. It was a pretty good lesson. Towards the end however, my instructor said she was happy I'd managed to ride the entire lesson.
I replied saying that the weather kinda helped as I didn't have to worry about a re-occurrence of the heat stroke I had 2 summers ago, especially as once you've had it you're more susceptible to it. And that I find that, now when it gets really hot- say around 30-35 degrees Celsius or higher, I can't stand it as long as I could before I had the heat stroke incident.
She answered me by saying that "that's age too".
EXCUSE ME!?! If I was in my mid 30's or 40's, I could maybe understand her saying that. However, I am only 21. Also I am still in recovery mode from my bout with Cancer. I really didn't appreciate her comment, also I didn't tell her or show at all how bad it made me feel.
Thanks for being so understanding, Allison. You'd think having known me for 10 years now, you'd know me better than that.
