Personally for me, it started out as...you are too young for that, and then it turned into...It's all in your head!!!
I'm kind of thankful in a twisted way for the...you are too young for that, suck it up thing, because the more people said that to me, the less I noticed it causing me to develop a very high thresh hold for pain!!!
When I was first diagnosed...everyone went down a total shame spiral, and felt so bad that they were saying sorry every time they saw me...barf!!! Now that I have been diagnosed, "YOU ARE TOO YOUNG FOR THAT" is my least favorite phrase in the world...if I were too young, would I have gone through it?!?!?
I did freak out on one of my "so called friends" once for telling me that it was all in my head!!! When he called me a crazy hypocodriach(sp)...I said...yeah, that's right I'm crazy, but I wish it was all in my head, because they could fix that!!!
I still have problems myself with wondering if it is all in my head because of the amount of tests and time it takes to figure things out!!! I get to celebrate the new year getting tested for epilepsy(sp) :cry: I guess it really is all in my head!!! :lol:
ops: WOW...guess I need that...any questions for me, I will be around!!! :lol:
