Doctors only gave me 6 months to live…

Can we stop using this phrase and others of a similar vein? Someone smarter than me think of an alternative. It’s often used in as a big FUCK YOU to doctors and nurses when an individual overcomes an almighty illness. Yes I’m happy for you, congratulations on such a miraculous recovery but let’s give the professionals a tad more respect. It’s like an old teacher who doubts your aspirations, so you do everything you can to defy them and prove them wrong. It’s good you defied the odds but let’s not rub it in the faces of those who aided you.
