I'm frustrated by all the people who tell me I look great and so healthy when I tell them I am sick. They refuse to believe it. I've told my college friends each several times over the phone and they don't want to believe it. In their defense they haven't seen me physically but other people have. I had a home health aide try to cut out 1.5 hours early and tell me I can pick up my own laundry in the dryer. I felt discriminated against because I am young. One time I got so annoyed after the person at SSDI office told me 3-4 times I look so healthy that I asked him, " Well, do people in Hospice look like they are going to die? Not the ones I've seen". I also had a brain hemmorrage and was in the hospital for 2 weeks and so many doctors who came by said I looked so healthy. I feel like saying, "well I looked ten times healthier than I did when I wasn't sick" How do I cope with this? perhaps that was why my dr won't fill out my paperwork for school loans discharge and disability. Luckily I got awarded ssdi anyway.
