    That and you’re too young to be in so much pain!! What are you going to do when you get to be my age?! 🙄

    Yes! I’ve stopped talking about it with people unless they are in my close circle because the comments “You’re too young to feel that bad.” “It’s gets worse when you get older.” “Wait until you get into your 50s.” are getting out of hand. I realize I’m young, but here I am and I’m not accepting the invalidation.

    Honestly it used to bother me at first but now I’m so used to it by now that it doesn’t bother me anymore

    100%, especially when I’m already at my doctor fatigue limit. Although it has gotten less frequent as I’ve gotten older :)
