But you dont look sick...

Since being diagnosed with Graves Disease I have run into alot of people who don't understand it. And I have found myself at a loss alot of times trying to explain it to people. People often think that because I don't "look" sick, that I'm not. A while ago a friend of mine showed this to me and I ran across it again today. It's called The Spoon Theory. And if you take the time to sit and read it, I think it will help you understand how people with autoimmune diseases live. It helped me understand alot and it really puts things in an easy way to understand.

Thanks.

That's a great article. In the last 2 years I have gone from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroid and what I would give to have a few spoons back now that my energy levels are so low. I don't look sick because I trudge through the day doing what needs to be done...even though I feel like crawling into bed for most of each day.
