I've let go of my anger towards the phrase, "But you don't look sick."

Before class today, I had an IV therapy appointment. I wake up every morning with fingers so swollen that they can't bend, but that doesn't mean that I don't use them to put makeup on when I feel like it. My body hurts all over, but that doesn't mean that I won't opt for wearing nicer clothes instead of my usual comfy-lazy style. I'm 22 years old, able-bodied passing, and a high-functioning perfectionist, but that doesn't mean that I'm too young, too outgoing, too "healthy looking" to have battled a chronic physical illness for 17 years. I have a disability and I don't care about your inability to comprehend that based on my appearance.

I headed straight to my class after my appointment, showed up, and sat down just like any healthy student would. From the outside, it appeared that I was a typical late college student because I stopped at Starbucks on my way (I went before IV therapy). On the inside, I was fatigued, fighting pain and anxiety, and recognizing my gratitude that I made it to my seat, despite my illness. & I don't need to tell anyone in my class that, because I know it's true. I don't "look sick", but I am. That's enough for me.

Against the odds, I am healing. Against the stigma, I am owning my illness. Against the experiences I've had in my life that have brought me so close to giving up, I am living. And you can too. You have nothing to prove to anyone, & if you are being honest with yourself, you don't need to feel at fault when people tell you that you must be healthy because you physically look that way. We are not the reason that people dismiss the validity of our illnesses; that's society. Let go of the accusations & the disbelief that only contribute to how isolated you already feel. Do what's best for you despite the judgments. But be honest about what you're going through, first with yourself before anyone else. Overexaggeration for the purpose of attention is part of the reason why the chronically ill are treated the way that they are. No matter how sick you are, that's enough. Don't try to be sicker than you are. Just do what you need to do for yourself. #rant

"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." –#Isaiah 1:17 We love how this verse speaks to God’s call for #justice and #advocacy. We ask God to show us today and every day, how to put this verse into practice: Show me Lord where in my daily life I have the opportunity–indeed, the calling–to do justice. Give me open eyes and a tender heart for those who are weak and powerless. What is your favorite #Bible verse related to justice? Share in the comments below!

Although talking about my personal struggles with #MentalHealth does not get easier, it is necessary. This is the reality so many people with lupus face. I hope that the words I shared today at the Lupus Patient-Focused Drug Development Meeting with the FDA help to normalize an open discussion around mental health and bring more awareness, research, and resources for trans health. #LupusPFDD #transhealth #lupusawareness #advocacy

Classmate: "What is this (holding up a ✏)" Me: "Um, a pencil?" Classmate: "Oh good job!" It's no secret that I was born in the Philippines. I moved to the US when I was 13 and started 7th grade. Naturally, I was put in regular classes and ESOL (program for foreign students to learn English) which in all honesty made me feel inferior. On top of that, other kids would sometimes test me by holding up random objects and asking me if I knew what it was. Because of this, I worked extra hard to learn English by reading books and making sure my grades are high so no one would think I'm dumb just because I did not know as much English as they did. It was no easy feat. My family spoke Tagalog predominantly at home so my only practice was at school. My grades were good, no one else was asking me about random things except I still had an accent. It always kind of hurt when other kids would make me repeat something I said because of my accent not because they did not understand what I said. Because of that, I would then rehearse what I needed to say in my head first so I don't make a mistake. As I grew older, I accepted that language was my weakness. I finished college in the US and it's still difficult for me. But it doesn't matter because I don't have to assimilate to be successful. 
I'm bilingual and I'm proud. 🇵🇭🇺🇸

Good news! Millions of Americans, including people like me with preexisting conditions, are not going to lose their health insurance - for now. Trumpcare has been defeated again - the senate is not going forward with their planned vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill. It's not over, though, so we all need to keep an eye on the news and be ready to mobilize when they try again. Call and meet with your representatives (find out who they are at https://www.usa.gov/elected officials) if you can. Vote in the 2018 midterms for people who believe health care is a right, not a privilege. Keep on persisting and resisting! 💪

We have issued a request for proposals to fund programs to train peer supports specialists for individuals living in institutions. The deadline to submit a proposal is November 15, 2017. 👉Link in Bio -
