When you are calm on the outside but screaming on the inside.
When light attacks you
When your mood begins to just plummet from the pain
When you say you’re ‘fine’ a lot, but damn you are not feeling fine at all.
When you are really sick of faking being well in order to function.
When you have a sort of ‘look’ when people recommend things to you you have heard for the 100th time.
When you try to find alternative ways to describe a migraine so people get it.
When your feel really out of sorts and completely dumbified with the pain sometimes.
And none of it is okay.
And we all deserve a standing ovation for existing like this. Because we survived another day.
