Tired and Misunderstood

I'm always in so much pain and I hate when my family asks "what hurts?" I don't even know where to start, so I usually just say everything.

Explaining my symptoms

If I went into every single thing that hurt, or how tired I am, or how I can barely walk or climb into my bed at night, they'd be overwhelmed. or wouldn't believe me...

I wish they could feel what I do for just one day to understand.
