"your so young and healthy!" all it would take is a single glance at my health chart to realize that is very much not true. legally disabled since I was 12 my good fellows. and the list has only grown.

      When you're a high functioning disabled person everyone expects the world from you, and consider any struggles to be a personal fault. I feel you on this one so much.

          @Marshmello it makes me wonder how far they would take it like would they still take this stance if one day I slept so long it just became a coma? I think the outcome in that case I'm the most concerned about is my mom coming up and telling me everyone experiences a mid 20s coma or something like that lmao

      When I was younger I heard this all the time and usually told it was in my head or if I just exercise and slept better it go away... Now I'm almost 43 and it's switched to "that's what happens when you start getting older"... My usual response is something like " then explain why it was there when I was 20"... And I usually get something to the effect of "well if it was that bad then it would have gotten treated then" so frustrating... I'll never get why people can't listen

      I hate hearing that! Older people think that they have worse issues and we have nothing to complain about. And I agree with the above. People see a high-functioning person and assume there is nothing they don't see. It's a major pain in the ass.
