Being Racially Diverse My Unknown Prejudices Have Been Cruel~

Fibromyalgia News Today Invisible Pain Quote for Fi

I have fought a lifetime of prejudices against issues being faced with being a Racially Diverse visible minority. I have written, spoken and walked the streets in protest against those who would have their world compromising mine. To discover that my own ignorance has seen me being equally Prejudice against those having ailments of INVISIBILITY was painful learning experience.

I had fallen into the very ignorance shared by many caring NOT TO LEARN, that seeing is not always what “they” are feeling. To think that I have allowed myself to have agreed (in the silence of my mind) with the extremely cruel and more seriously, equally debilitating, cheap shots thrown such as…..,

“Just get your lazy fat ass up and…..”
“You are such a hypochondriac…..”
“That is not even a real disease so just….”
“You are just an attention seeking …….”
“Just get a job already and stop whining about….”

I get it; we are not all exposed to the most undated medical journals and or the latest in medical discoveries. However having recently had a close up and personal experience with the REAL MEDICAL community, they who should be most informed, yet at times exhibiting more prejudices than a lifelong racist; I get it! I get it, that some very close friends and sadly family, are the very mouthpieces of the above lines of prejudices and ignorance.

Making matters even worst, is the fact that many individuals with ailments of INVISIBILITY, themselves have kept such disabilities SECRET out of the fear from individuals such as I, who having no knowledge of its existence and more so its seriously debilitative (at times shamed) effect upon its victims.

Imagine if you can the pain of standing in front of a family member or friend, having to listen to their extremely ill-informed at times ignorant, pretentious assertions of knowing, as they speak “I could spot one of them from a mile away” and you want so much to say, well I am standing right here and yet you are blinded to my existence.

Fibromyalgia is one such ailment that I am, and yes I can say this as absolute fact, one of the very first to have known of its existence by medical name. I did not suffer from it nor did I know of anyone having suffering from such an ailment. However one of my very first students, (soccer) having returned to Canada from a research symposium, was a part of the early studies that identified Fibromyalgia as one of the earlier ailments of INVISIBILITY.

Since that time, there have been many new discoveries having shed light on the varied unique causes that triggers similar symptoms; fact remains it is a widely recognized ailment of INVISIBILITY that far too many continue to ignorantly dismiss as ..

“Just get your lazy fat ass up and…..”
“You are such a hypochondriac…..”
“That is not even a real disease so just….”
“You are just an attention seeking …….”
“Just get a job already and stop whining about….”

As stated earlier in this article, I have come to understand that the first and most effective cure of any ailment is to say, “I believe you!”

It is time as friends and more shamefully so, family members of the sufferers, do right by those having fallen victims to the many still unknown and misunderstood ailments of INVISIBILITY, with a simply offering of love by saying, “I believe you!”

And if you find that you cannot extend love then shut the F**K up with your hate
