Health, or rather the lack thereof

Excerpt:
Living with illness is not easy especially when it is not a visible one. As a species we tend to disregard anything that is not visible. If we can’t see it, we can’t prove it and therefore it doesn’t exist and it must be a lie.

Living with illness is not easy especially when it is not a visible one. As a species we tend to disregard anything that is not visible. If we can’t see it, we can’t prove it and therefore it doesn’t exist and it must be a lie. I know that I give up trying to explain to others that I have a migraine but there is no pain. It doesn’t compute.

We have no empathy.
