I've been noticing how people treat me when they find out that I have Lupus. They kinda look at me like Im crazy. Then they always end with my favorite remark, "but you dont LOOK sick!". I dunno,but it pisses me off sometimes. I've gone to sooo many doctors. Even they would tell me how well I look. That Im just having "growing pains". Today I had an interview at a dental office. Nice staff. But the first thing out of the Office Managers mouth after I told het that I have lupus was" well you look atleast you dont look sick". I must have made her nervous by the look on my face, because she nervously laughed it off. Needless to say, I didn't want to work in that office. So I dunno, I guess I needed to vent about my frustration, I guess because I know Im not alone in feeling this way.I sometimes feel invisible because of Lupus. I look fine and healthy, but looks are not always what they appear to be. I wish people would learn that. Well anyways, I just needed to vent. Hugs, Niecy.
