    Ikr.. I even had a doctor tell me I was throwing up to be dramatic when I was in my early teens. A lot of people unfortunately are uneducated and should be getting much more education than they are

    I have had so many things like that. Or that I thought everyone found some things uncomfortable but I simply couldn't handle the issues as well

    i’ve done the same with a lot of symptoms i have and i have no idea if some of them are considered normal or not. sometimes if i tell someone something i endure, they’re shocked cause it apparently isn’t normal for our bodies

    me too. it definitely doesn’t help when everyone around you dismisses your symptoms as well. it took be quite a bit of time to let all of that go and accept that my pain was valid

    Same, realizing it wasnt normal was validating to me that my pain was real and I wasnt just being a baby, that I was suffering. I just wish others didnt invalidate it
