Again, "It's all in your head" is a common statement that patients with "Invisible Illnesses" constantly hear. Then follows the "Blame Game," with intense guilt questions such as: "Why aren't you cleaning the house?" "Didn't you go looking for a job today?" "When are you going to change out of your pajamas and wear regular clothes?" Shame and guilt won't cure us, world! We have a medical problem that needs care!
My X husband of 15 years would tell me my endometriosis symptoms were "all in my head". It's hard enough living with an Invisible Illness then we have to prove to the world how sick we are. Thanks Heather
Many people don't understand the reality of suffering from Endometriosis. Hopefully we will be able to change the perception of society with regards to the disease sooner than later.
Love this discussion. The universal thread that ties us together with these invisible illnesses. I just want these souls to know their not alone, not anymore.
