But You Look So Good

About 7 million people require some type of mobility help, a cane, walker, crutches or a wheelchair. Over 125 million Americans have a chronic condition, and some of us have more than one. Forty million are limited in their everyday lives, but some have no visible signs.

Many conditions, including MS, affect our lives without revealing characteristics to the public. Invisible disabilities bring with them a different set of potential difficulties. When you look good, your friends may not understand that you do not feel good.

This is so true!!!

When people can't see your illness, like for me I am not in a chair, they forgot that I have limits. They push me and get mad when I am tired. Then they think that they can relate to my form of tiredness.
