There is nothing worse than not feeling understood or supported.
In fact, I think it can sometimes make symptoms worse.
As if it's not hard enough to struggle daily with our bodies, when we have to constantly explain or defend how we feel, it can be very hurtful. It can even make us feel hopeless.
Only those of us who suffer can truly understand what it's like. We are the only ones inside of our bodies, the only ones who can literally "feel" our pain.
If you feel like you are misunderstood or alone, please know that you're not.
I am hoping that my words can comfort you.
