I know too well how it feels that no one believes you are sick because you look ‘normal’
You think that because the tests came back normal, that I must be making it all up, right?
The next round of tests showed just how messed up my body is, but even with proof, you still deny what is right in front of you.
If I take the two minutes to do my makeup and put on normal clothes, it does not mean that I am ‘cured’ or that I lied about my illness. It means I am trying to be stronger than the monster that is my body.
This has not been an easy journey for me. And yet here I am still standing strong in the face of the worst time of my life without the support of you.
Without you, I am still standing. Without you, I still manage to be okay.
You don’t have to believe me, I know the truth. Those in my life who have stepped up at this time in my life are those who truly matter to me.
I will get through this. With or without you.
