Hi my name is Elizabeth and I struggle with chronic illnesses.
One of my hardest things with my illnesses are that they are invisible. In school I have to use the elevator due the my illnesses sometimes I will take the stairs. Kids will always say you’re faking it, you’re fine, get up.
I can’t participate in physical education but I can do recess. Always certain teachers carry stress one of my past teachers kept confronting me about my illnesses when I was in 3rd grade and I was new to that school at that time. My teacher broke the law with me she said if you can’t do pe your not allowed to do recess she made me sit out at recess and watch everyone else play. It is against the law a kid at least has to do recess or pe. At stores I have to ride the electric carts because I chase walk in stores I hate using them because I get all these stares and look and whippers about me. Once a employee at Publix came up to me and said you have to be 18 or older to ride one of those I said I’m handicapped. It sucks to have invisible illnesses and people just judge you and you can’t say anything to them.
