  1. such a hidden illness but such a painful one to deal with. I’ve worked with clients who suffer. this is such an important illness to bring awareness about! because often the suffering is silent!


  2. It is a hidden illness and I keep the fact that I have it hidden to, this is the only place I really talk about it. It is because I know that no one will believe me. I have had some of the symptoms since I was 14 yet no one really listened to me and told me its just a phase and ill get over it.


  3. I’ve had for as long as I can remember. I am glad they are finally realizing that children have it too.


  4. I was a kid and teen with it and did not know what it was! I was the weird one, the hypochondriac, etc. . . I was relieved when I was finally given a name and medicines to help relieve it – in my forties!
