Aimee Mullins’ last Ted talk. She’s an athlete, model and activist (kindof a Wonder Woman), plus she’s an amputee. P.S. Her prosthetic legs are awesome, I envy her for being able to adjust her height too.

I made a comic about what it feels like (to me) to cope with having an invisible illness and the judgements and accusations that sometimes come with invisible illnesses.

I did it in green ‘cause that’s the color of the Celiac Awareness ribbon Celiac is one of the “imaginary” “all in your head” “stupid” “hypochondriac” invisible illnesses I live with.

So here. Be nice to people in general, because it’s the right thing to do, but if you can’t at least do that then please don’t be an asshole when someone tells you that they have Lupus or Celiac or Fibromyalgia or any of the other things that we live with every day that you can’t see on the surface.

Cheers.

praise! this is a perfect comic for explaining what it’s like for new friends :D

Invisible disability awareness.

Just want to say I love your blog! I'm a bilateral below knee amputee after suffering meningitis when I was 6 and your blog is so inspiring
