I’d like to throw in my vote for “Gee, at least it wasn’t cancer” as the all-time ridiculous response to telling people about my brain tumor. I also run into disbelief, dismissal or diminishment of my ongoing symptoms, being told that my short term memory loss, difficulty with word-finding and fatigue are due to my age (I’m only 54!!) or that my inability to work full time at a career I had for 25 years is due to laziness (which is masqueraded by the term “deconditioned”)
