Hidden Disabilities Feeling Invisible

I know many of you have felt invisible like me due to our disabilities or as I call them warriorbilities.    One of the things I still find hard is using my blue badge or walking up to the fast checkout in shops.  Some people are so supportive and never judge me but I have come across the few who stare at me when I get out of the car and walk to the shop door.

They don’t see me sitting in bed so fatigued or in pain  I can’t even brush my teeth.  They don’t see the many days I am unable to even think never mind run a household.  If I am outside I’m having a good day which is few so I try not to dwell on the judges who know nothing about me.

I have had people say.  You are not ill you are not disabled  On a good day I can explain but why should I feel I need too
