What Does "Sick" Look Like to You?
What does “sick” look like? Does it show on your face? Does it show in your weight?
This picture (taken back when I was 14 years old) is how I feel at some point in every day. I’ve been sick for half of my life now but I’ve rarely ever shown it (besides pictures like these.) The Taylor you see in my pictures, in my videos, in real life, is not the Taylor I always FEEL.
I’ve worked HARD to feel as good as I do now. I still work HARD to feel well enough to present myself to the world each day. Can you relate? 🤔
While many of us work hard to put our best faces on in life, we’ve all felt like I do in this picture at one point or another. This feeling sucks and I’m sorry you go through it too, but I’m happy to tell you that you’re not alone.
We can all empathize and get through life supporting one another, even when we don’t look sick in the first place. You don’t have to go through any invisible illness alone. You don’t have to feel like no body out there gets it. There are plenty of us out there who understand and many of us out there, like me, who are here for you.
Oh and don’t forget, the more we talk about our invisible illnesses, the more normalized it will become too. ❤️
