I haven't shown you guys these two so here u go
~Represents my pain~
There's a reason why I generally don't talk about being sick. I don't like to, because most people don't understand, and it's tiring dealing with the concern on their faces, or their attitude of "If I cant see it, it doesn't exist". It's called invisible illness for a reason. I don't know what I have, I just have a collection of symptoms that are invisible. You can't see my pain, but it's there. Same with my nausea and fatigue. To some extent, you can see my sinus tachycardia (if I have my hair down). Even if the swelling of my joints doesn't cause that much pain or inconvenience, which it sometimes does, and sometimes doesn't, it's something that's visible, along with the bruising and hair loss (curly hair is a godsend for that). Because of this attitude that people face me with, seeing it makes it real. You can't just explain swollen joints like you can bruises and hair loss. It makes people believe me, even if it does come at a price. It cant be passed off as psychological, that my anxiety is making my heart go off and creating my nausea, or my depression is creating my pain. I can be happy, but in pain, and calm, but my heart is going off. They do impact, but they are separate things.
