This was posted on my facebook page by someone who is suffering and no one understands. I believe most of us here can relate--because one cannot see the illness it must not exist.
"i'm posting this because recently I have been mocked and laughed at for things beyond my control I CARE...I have one of these illnesses as does others in my family.... Not one of my face book friends will copy and paste (but I am counting on a true family member or friend to do it). If you would be there for me no matter what then copy and paste this. I'm doing this to prove a friend wrong that someone is always listening. I care. Hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It's a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on .........the outside. Please put this as your status for at least 1 hour if you or someone you know has an invisible illness (Crohn's, PTSD, Anxiety, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease, Bipolar, Depression, Diabetes, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, MS, AS, ME, , Epilepsy, Autism, M.D.,D.D.D., CFS, Histiocytosis, RSD, PBC, etc.) Never judge what you don't understand"
