I don’t look sick

I don’t look sick but my skin feels bumpy, it itches and burns…

I don’t look sick but my legs often feel like jello and give out whenever they want to… I’ve taken more falls than I can count…

I don’t look sick but the simplest tasks take me forever to complete…

I don’t look sick but it feels like someone is punching me in my stomach… Twisting and pulling it till I throw up…

I don’t look sick but I can’t concentrate on anything so because of this my memory suffers…

I don’t look sick but I have muscle spasms, numbness, tingling and twitches from head to toe all day and night…

I don’t look sick but on the inside my bones feel like someone is taking a jackhammer to them… When the Rain comes and the cold weather is near it hurts even more..

I don’t look sick but my head aches for hours on hours it feels foggy and heavy…

I don’t look sick but most days my muscles are so weak I often can’t stand or sit… evening laying is a task…

I don’t look sick but I do feel sick. So until you can climb into my body and feel what I feel, don’t say to me

well you don’t look sick

There are people fighting battles you know nothing about. Watch your words, they could be the final crack that shatters those fighting so hard to just make it day to day…
