The Spoon Theory.

So my sister in law shared this on Facebook, and I thought I would share it with you! It sometimes surprises me how insensitive people can be to people who have illnesses, (not just Epilepsy) and say straight to your face that you don’t look sick, or just to get over it because its all in your head.. It’s not that easy, and we cannot help it. #BRINGOUMOREAWARENESS #OTHERILLNESSES #BLATANTABUSEOFHASHTAGS. #DAMNIT, #MYSISTERINLAWCONVERTEDME #DARKSIDE.

  1. It amazes me how ignorant people can be when it comes to mental illness or even other illness that are not displayed all the time. Just because it does not have a physical manifestation does not mean that there is no suffering. I’m really hoping that one day people begin to understand that, and that they stop making light of such ailments sooner rather than later.

  2. Reblogged this on Author Dana Ellington Myles and commented:
    The article linked in this blog is mind opening. If you suffer from any type of chronic illness, whether the symptoms are visible or not, use this to help those around you understand what you go through on a daily basis. I truly believe it will help A LOT. Thank you to blogger Meganelizabethmorales for sharing.
