Tired of Headaches.

Have you noticed that no one has sympathy for you when you're tired?  It's a debilitating condition that effects your physical and mental abilities. Yet, being tired is often shrugged off as either unimportant or the fault of the person suffering from it.

That's why I no longer tell people when I'm tired.

I lie and say I have a headache.

People tend to feel bad for you when you have a headache and they treat you nicer.

Chronic pain gets similar responses. Surely no one can be in pain that must be a mental problem. I'm really tempted to start spouting "There's nothing wrong. I'm just ugly."

Not to get off on a tangent, but it really sucks when doctors can't figure it out and tell a patient it's all in her head.
When Mom found out she had cancer, she was all in her doctor's face, "I TOLD you something was wrong!"

Other pieces of work are jerks who harrass people who have a handicap card for their car but no cane or walker. There are invisible handicaps, too.

So yeah. What Thumper said.
