Face 1850

AS has been many things for me, but most of all, I think it has been validation. All of the pain and illness that others told me was in my head is real. I’m not crazy! And no one ever had the right to tell me that I wasn’t experiencing the pain I was, because “nobody” hurts everywhere like I did. Well, actually, I’ve met quite a few who also have this disease, and you know what? They’re not crazy either. And we are strong people who get through every day fighting a battle those others will never know. But we know. We’re warriors. We’re not crazy.
