Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.
If you are healthy, please reblog.If you are sick, please reblog.If you have a disability, please reblog.If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.If you are a human being, please reblog.Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

This is really important.My father once had his foot crushed when he worked at a steel mill, and even after surgery his foot still causes him excruciating pain. For years he had to use a cane just to walk around, but now he tries his hardest to do without it. My mother has a herniated disc in her back, and several of the discs surrounding it have been crushed/pulverized basically. On top of that, she also has severe Spinal Stinosis— which is the narrowing of the nerves in your back/spine in case you didn’t know. It hurts her just to try and walk, or move in any way. Also, on another note, my old manager that I used to have had Fibromyalgia and was in constant pain- sometimes pain so severe that he would just sit in the office at work with the door locked, sweating, trying to bear the pain he was in.They don’t have wheelchairs, or walkers, or even walking canes. But do they deserve handicapped placards? You bet your ass they do. You might not be able to see their pain, but fuck you if you think they’re “faking it” and should park a half a mile back in the parking lot when going to the grocery store.
