If you have an illness like cancer, and put a smile on your face, everyone says " how strong, how brave". If you have an invisible illness and smile, everyone thinks you're fine! The professionals especially place emphasis on negativity and CBT and I truly get its importance, but I have had m.e (diagnosed) for seven months now. I am a really positive person who believes she will get better, but sometimes I am so terrified of smiling for fear of people thinking I am fine and no longer need help. I haven't posted on here before, I hope no one minds me sharing my thoughts.
