    i can relate i just hate the fact how people just rub it off thinking that it is just a simple headache

    Me too. My school wouldn’t give me alternative learning and told me to basically suck it up and fail. I passed by the skin of my teeth and lots of ER visits for painkillers the night before school starts.

    Same. It sucks when people try to invalidate you about your own experiences. A couple years ago I was dealing with migraines for the first time and they were awful. I felt nauseous all the time, couldn't focus, could barely keep my head up. I spent most of the day just lying down. Everyone I talked to about it either did not believe me or asked if I'd seen a doctor first. idk how anyone looked at me and thought I was okay.

    For real. I always get anecdotes too, like oh I rubbed my neck tension and it went away! Like it’s that simple!/s it’s different for everyone. And why does nobody care? Do they think they can’t do anything? News flash: they can be supportive 🥲

    SAME. I always get the “well you don’t look like you’re in pain?” Sorry, let me just fall to the floor real quick and make a scene
