I find dealing with invisible pain very hard. I try not to limp because I don't want to cause problems elsewhere in my body, and both feet hurt in different parts anyway! I try to get on with life without asking others to do too much for me, because I want to be capable. I've stopped wearing my wrist splints during the day because I'm worried my muscles are wasting, they seem thinner and my bones stick out wrong. But then my hands just hurt so much as soon as I do anything! It's so hard to have pain that others can't see.
