Do Not Label Me

My first daily post was inspired by https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/label/

I am a chronic pain sufferer. I suffer from fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. Both diseases are invisible. It’s easy to label someone with chronic pain “a druggie”, “drug seeker”, or liar.  Because the pain is invisible we often get disbelief when someone learns of our disease. We hear “you look fine.” or “You don’t look sick.” It takes someone with compassion to truly understand what a chronic pain patient goes through on a daily basis.  Please treat me, not the label.
