I'm frustrated that therapists don't understand this illness. I feel I have to tell them, because it's such a huge part of my life, but if they don't know me, they think I'm some lazy person who just doesn't want to work, or crazy person claiming I have some invisible illness that is so bad? I have 2 other diagnoses they would question too. They would think the emotional/psych problems are causing the physical. It's separate illnesses. Just wondering if they are rare, ones who can understand. I had one who had a condition (for a few years), so I guess he understood more than most, but still not what I hope for. I think it's hard to understand this particular one, unless you are close to someone who has it, or have it yourself.
