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:
“Why are you in so much pain?”
When the pain is at its worst:
“You seem fine”
“How can you be in so much pain, but still look fine?”
No more pretending:
