I'm 35 years old and I feel sort of guilty for having all the health issues I have: Chronic myalgia, hashimotos and Sjogren's syndrome. The fact that are not very viisble illnesses makes personally a bit better but also worse when it comes to making people understand what's wrong with me, and the fact that my body is more similar to the body of a healthy 65. I have my ESA medical soon and I wonder if the fact that what they'll see is a young person will smehow dictate them I must be alright. I absolutely hate when people say "You look fine", "You will be fine in time", "I had the same and now it's resolved" etc..people do not seem to understand the situation or know much about chronic illnesses - They obviously don't even understand what a chronic illness is.
