Otherwords, you know you have a disability or a disorder that is challenging your daily living and have been diagnosed with the disability etc...but people still look at you and just think you are making it up etc... So what do you? How you deal with that? And how do you prove them wrong?

People dont understand what they dont have. With my vocal cord disability I can talk but have severe pain when I do, some days are better than others, some days the pain is so bad it hurts to push my voice out so I whisper or write on paper but I can force my voice out and sound normal if I have to. My relatives and others dont understand and always say to me oh you sound great when im in agony. I tell them im hurting and they still proceed on trying to talk to me for an hour or so. They think I sound find I must be fine, its so annoying and frustrating when people dont understand and just assume your fine or its not that bad.

that has to be frustrating! You must have patience to contend with that!

Yeah, I totally agree. People will look at me and tell me that I "look" fine, and it gets so frustrating because they have no idea about the battle going on inside my body due to Lupus, arthritis and other illnesses that I fight. I am also bipolar and anorexic and so many people want to tell me to "just eat", and that is really frustrating. They don't understand that it is an illness that requires treatment.
