My MIL has had multiple back surgeries, actually when I met my husband a lot of our first dates were at his house cause his mom was recovering from one, and his older brother was to bothered to help out.

Looking at her, you wouldn't know, if you know her well you'll see a bad day cause she walks off, a little slower. On a really bad day she just doesn't get out of bed. She has a handicapped parking pass, whatever they are called, and I've heard people make comments. Most of the time she just ignores them, sometimes (usually a day she's in a lot of pain) she'll pull her shirt up so they can see the scars. They shut right up, but it goes to the whole 'if you can't see it, it must not be bad' mentality. Its also a mentality that people have towards mental health.

You'll get no judgement from me.
