It’s not unusal for people with invisible illnesses to not be believed by friends and family. You might fall out of touch with some of them. You know what? It’s THEIR loss. It will hurt like hell at first. It will. These people are supposed to support you no matter what.
You hear words like hypochondriac and neurotic but at the end of the day it is those who stick by you that count. Don’t let the opinions of those who turn their backs get into your head.
You can only hold on so long before you have to let them go. Sometimes for your own sanity and well being you just gotta say: boy, bye!
This is one of my favourite quotes from a person who has brought me great joy on the days I can’t move because of my pain. @rupaulofficial
