I just had my hair done this last month perfessionally, and bought some expesive maybe up at Macys, and try to dress up often, but alot of day I'm just too tied to do anyting, so I throw my hair in a messy bun and skip the makeup, since I so have clear skin, so I guess when people cach me on a nice looking day, they think I'm getting ready to go out when I'm not, but then that wears me out so much from blow drying and straightening my hair, that I dont have the energy the next several days to do anyting. So when people see me on days where I'm not dressed up, they seem to assume I'm sick. And of course I tell them I feel ill, but I dont tell them what I'm ill from (chronic pain from my back and fibro) cause I dont wanna hear anyones views on it. And if they wanna know more information I just tell them I think I'm coming down with something. It just seems like too many people have bad views on chronic pain, unless I know they have chronic pain too and they'll understand, but otherwise I keep my mouth shut lol.
