What is one thing you wish more people knew about you?

How disabling my dysautonomia really is. I wish they could live with it for 5 minutes to see how every little thing in life is a struggle. Everything. Talking, walking, dressing, showering, eating, drinking, digesting, lying down, sleeping, breathing, shopping, reading, listening, seeing, thinking, taking over 15 minute car rides, being a sick mom/daughter/sibling/relative/friend...all a struggle.

But's a struggle for us all. So ultimately, I wish that they knew that because of my illness I know just how much EVERYONE (healthy and sick) struggle just to be alive.
