The pain is real

Living with an chronic invisible illness can be hard to explain to others how much your pain you live with. Sometimes its easier to downplay how much pain your in.

Trying to have a conversation with someone while in a lot of pain:

When the pain is at its worst:

“You seem fine”

“How can you be in so much pain, but still look fine?”

    100 per cent spot on , people understand pain, and what they see on the outside, ,
    What is impossible to explain is , this pain never goes away, it’s 24/7, not like you can put a plaster on it , or kiss it better…..
    All people live there life’s of appearances what they see on the outside, they assume , , never to hold your hand , look deep in your eyes and ask for real ….
    Take care , and keep fighting ,
