So, I have ADHD & anxiety, and I'm only 12, so I have a list.

- Stop faking it.
- You don't need that to focus! Just try harder! (I need to have something to fidget with to stay focused)
- Can't you just, like, hold it in or something? (I have tics from it)
- Girl's don't have that.
- You're just asking for attention.
- Stop being lazy and do something.
- Just speak up! It's not that hard.
- Why are you so quiet all the time? You should change. (sorry Karen, but it's not that easy)
- Why must you be like this? Just be like everyone else and you'll be fine.

After breast cancer treatment including a mastectomy and a 9hr reconstruction surgery a colleague said to me “well at least you didn’t have to have major surgery”
No, sure, I just had part of me amputated & another part of my body moved to replace it.

Though to be fair, I didn't know until relatively recently how invasive a mastectomy actually is! It's not merely the breast tissue that is removed, but a huge chunk of muscle as well.

Not sure if this counts but I have Cystic Fibrosis (An inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system) and the worst thing someone told me is hard to just tell so I gotta give the context
so it was winter right so the air was super cold, and my lungs are very sensitive to cold air even though i love it so i cant breathe outside when its cold and it hurts my lungs really bad and my throat gets all scratchy and raw (like when you run for too long, just without the running part)
And i was outside at school with my friends and i was breathing very heavily trying to get oxygen and i was kinda dizzy because it was hard and my friends looked at me and said "are you okay?" thinking maybe i would throw up or something, i said "yeah im fine its just cold out" and they were confused and were like "...so?" i said "... so... i have a lung disease....? can't breathe...?" and they were like "stop it, you're not going to get pity, just suck it up its not that bad, you're just super out of shape" haha yeah well easy for them to say with their perfect lung function and healthyness. but i went home and cried because that hurt me really bad now I'm super self-conscious about how heavy im breathing because i don't want people to think i'm out of shape or weak or anything.

"You don't know what stress is" when I told someone I was stressed out during exams at school...

My kidneys were failing, I might have had to start dialysis soon*, I was going through puberty, was being bullied at school, my grandad had just died, and was being emotionally/mentally abused and neglected at home. Oh, and I have a disability from birth which makes every step painful. So yeah, no stress there.

That's just one example. I'm in such a better place now thankfully!! But here's an nice one (note, my physical disability makes me walk weird) - Random little boy saw me and asked "why's she walking like that" and his mum said "that's just how she walks" and he just said okay and went on his merry way. Shared a smile with the mum. A+ interaction, would normalise again

*which terrified me as, aside from me being needle-phobic, can cause heart attacks if you're really unlucky.

I have AD/HD, diagnosed as a kid in the 80s when the concept was new and we didn’t know much about it.

As a child:
1. You’re so lazy/stupid/weird.
2. Girls don’t have that.
3. To my mom: We don’t have programs for girls with AD/HD. (Her answer: You do now.)
4. There’s no such thing.

As an adult:
1. Why can’t you pay more attention to detail?
2. Don’t we ALL have AD/HD?
3. You just need to focus/try harder.
4. Why do you have so much stuff at your desk?
5. There’s no such thing.
6. Regarding my reasonable accommodations for color-coded office supplies: You sure do like your pens/post-it’s/file folders.

Stop faking it your ruining everything (ex friend
(Kid at park) What’s wrong with that kid (mom) I don’t know keep walking

You can’t play with us you’ll make us look like you! (Kid
Nobody would want to marry you! Your ugly (kid
Can you wear clothes that cover your skin? Your distracting the other kids(teacher

They would never play with me, give me Valentine’s Day cards I would make cards for everybody, they bullied me, the teachers didn’t even take me seriously! They thought I was stupid.



Things they would say to me as a adult:

Hey uggo! Go f**k yourself! (Drunk guy
(Looks at lady with child) stay away from me and my child you monster!
(Bumps into Karen) ew don’t touch me I’ll call the police!
(At the cashier) what’s wrong with your face!
Why would she do that to herself ya she looks so weird (coworkers)
Can you just stop!? ( coworker)
Your so selfish! Faking your skin thing and faking depression you ruin everything!

I have severe allergic asthma and have accommodations at work. I had someone tell me that it must be nice to leave whenever I don’t feel like working. I was aghast- I would not wish this on my worst enemy. How would you like to walk into a new place and not know if you can breathe? Or just stop being able to breathe for no real apparent reason? And then have to always, always, always have access to your inhalers and nebulizer at a second’s notice. And then have to know where the closest hospital is in case you cannot catch your breath. And the money spent on inhalers and various other things to keep me breathing is ridiculous (I’m in the US). Also, having to watch what I eat- if I eat a lot of dairy, I have issues with congestion. Same with a lot of carbohydrates. Asthma sucks.

This isn't about me, but my son. I hope that's ok. My son is on the autism spectrum. I have a family member who told me that my son's behavior was basically my fault. This person asked me whether or not I hit my son when he exhibits his behaviors. I said no. He said that my lack of discipline (hitting) was to blame. He went on to say that autism wasn't real, it was just an excuse for lazy parents to justify their children's behavior. This coming from a person with no children, no experience with children, and zero knowledge of autism. I deleted that ahole from our lives.

Hi everyone! I am 14 years old fyi. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes since I was 4. And also have celiac desease. But anyways, to control my blood sugar levels I have to wear two pumps on my arms. And people can be very judgmental. I have been called "cyborg" or " having ugly arms"(because my pumps are visable on my arms) or even "unnatural" just for having to wear medical pumps, checking all of my food for being gluten free and counting all if my carbs and having to take breaks when my sugar becomes low as I could pass out or die if it gets too low or too high. Also people automatically assume things like me not being able to eat sugar. That is totally not true, so i have to explain to those who care what this desease actually is. Anyways, I hope you have an amazing day! And dw there are a bunch of supportive people I surround myself with! All my friends are super understanding so I am all good! Anyways, thanks for reading!

I found out I had a bone disease at 34 called Avascular Necrosis. I had two hip replacements at 36. I had to have reconstruction surgery on my hip muscles and IT bands at 41. At 42, I work on the 5th floor of a 6 story building and due to Covid, the elevator is reserved for people who have disabilities. I take the elevator. While waiting for the elevator, I had a coworker ask me if my disability was being fat or being lazy. While in the elevator, I've had a different coworker tell me he faked an ankle injury to ride in the elevator, then he asked me what I was faking. I can't tell you how many times I have been told how lucky I am to ride in the elevator. My standard response is "I had four surgeries on my legs and have two hip implants with 6 screws. I've had to relearn how to walk 4 times over now. Yep, I'm super lucky..."

Bi-polar disorder. I was told that I should plan my "mental health" days in advance and that it was not a valid excuse for calling out of work. I replied that I didn't have a choice, the police officer that escorted me to the emergency room due to a suicide attempt said that if I refused to comply with him he would have to restrain me and I could be arrested. My "mental health" days are often medical emergencies. Rapid cycling is no joke. You are just incapable of rational decision making and you don't have a lot of control.

Hello, borderline ADHD/ADD here. Biro female as well.

Just so you know, I am 13 (will be 13 in 33 days) and in 8th grade.

Once, an ex-friend told me that ADHD wasn't real and that I was just "weird" and that's why i "had no friends". I put shaving cream in his gym clothes.

My teachers have told me this as well, all through fifth grade my school didn't have a very good understanding of gifted kids until me and 6/7 other kiddos came along. Constant scrutinization. It was so bad I took to hiding under the tables. This small-ass 10 y.o. hiding under her chair.

Tried coming out to my fam, decided to scope it out first, my mum is borderline homophobic and my dad is just-no.

So...yeah.

Especially recently since I'm almost an adult I've been pressured by my dad in particular to eat but it's not that easy. I hate when he compares me to my younger siblings it really hurts because I don't know why I have issues eating.

Hey. This one cuts deep. I had a good friend that died of anorexia. I know you can't "snap out of it" or "just try harder," but know that you are NOT fat. You are really are a worthwhile human being. Now, psychology aside: the facts. Unfortunately starving yourself to become thinner is not a viable solution. Although reducing caloric intake does lead to fat consumption, it also causes metabolic damage. Anorexia combined with your anxiety (a stress-based disorder) can lead to metabolic damage. The way it affects most people is that the starvation lowers the metabolic rate, thereby causing only a small amount of caloric intake to be used and the rest converted to fat. This actually causes fat gain. So, now you might be thinking, "why are you telling me this? I already have heard it so many times and its not that easy!" A loved one of mine died to this. I'm telling you now what I wish I had told her then. Please, you may not be able to "try harder" and stop, but do try harder to get help.

I have AD/HD, depression, a very short attention span, and I'm only 13. Nothing I do seems to please my parents and my only friends are just like me, sad, alone, misunderstood. My parents take us on trips thinking it will relieve the tension when all it does is stress me out. I don't want all this stuff, I want to feel loved, understood, and wanted. the only people that understand are my friends. I tell them more than I tell my parents and I only see my friends on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday(at school) we have become so close that if we don't see one of them at school and don't hear from them for 24 hours we start panicking, spamming "are you ok" messages on every way of contact, asking around if anyone has seen/heard from them, trying to figure out when the last time we heard from them ( I really need to stop watching/listening to true crime shows/podcasts ), trying to bribe them to ansere our panicked messages(candy, chips, etc) once we panicked all because one was sick and had changed her number but forgot to tell us. like the song...
until the very next day, bum bum bum bum bududum , when the girl walked up to the school that day, and she said to her friend who she had worried away "hay!" bum bum bum "are you ok?" and the friend said "yeah I just changed my number and forgot to tell you huh that's a bummer!" and they wattled away wattle, wattle, and they wattled away wattle wattle wattle .

I have autism. My school was ok with me having certain accommodations like going into the hall when it’s too loud. But this one teacher decided to bully me. He would just try to embarrass me in front of the class by using my homework as an example of what not to do. One day I didn’t know the answer to a question he asked me in front of the class so I said I didn’t know he thought that wasn’t good enough and decided that I had to give him an answer so I was now being pressured to think fast in front of the class and potentially get the answer wrong and I got super stressed out so I just said I didn’t know. Later he came over to my desk and took my math book to over explain the problem that we hat to work on. I took my book back and said I already understood. He sent me out into the hall. He then came out and said if I didn’t talk to him he was going to have to have a meeting with me and the principal and him and my mom. I just said talk to my mom. He insisted. I went back to the classroom packed my stuff and left.

I also think he is homophobic.(current teacher)

OCD, here.

It's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, NOT Obsessive Cleaning Disorder. I have had thoughts I don't want to think, bad habits that are nearly impossible to break (I've tried), and nobody believing me because of stereotypes. Not all of us obsess over things being even, and it is rare for someone to compulsively clean.

With people from my school faking OCD and other illnesses, especially tics, it makes it hard to be taken seriously. I had a therapist skip over the discussion when I brought it up so I have to fight my battles on my own without help. Stop romanticizing mental illnesses and let the ones suffering get help.

I've got a variety of physical conditions and hands down, the worst thing anyone has ever said to me was, "You shouldn't breed." While my joint hypermobility is inherited, 90% of people who have my condition are pain free and don't suffer as I do from joint pain and dislocations, so chances are any kids I have will just be bendy and floppy.

Another bad one was that I'd never find someone who wanted to be with a "disabled person" (the words they used were far worse).

Jokes on them; I met a wonderful guy who understands everything I go through cause he's got the same disability. We got engaged last year and we're expecting our first child come November.

Social anxiety, severe depression, struggled with self harm since I was very young, kidney & bladder problems, then diagnosed in recent years with a personality disorder. Struggled all my working life to keep all the former hidden from everyone. Over 25 years of work at the same employer then suddenly told by really horrible new manager that we can’t cope with your mental health so we can’t employ you anymore.

I often wonder why I am still here but thanks to my moggies for being here for me when no bugger else has been.

My Sisters friend had one covering half her face, used to get teased a lot about it. I started a rumour at school that I was secretly going out with her but 'keep it quiet because my sister doesn't know' (That made sure everyone knew). Within a week she was the most popular kid at school. She's getting married this year to a very lucky guy and I can't wait to see how beautiful she looks in her dress.

Aspie here. Worst thing I've ever heard from someone about it was that they didn't believe I have Asperger's because "[I] don't act like [an autistic person]". Way to be ignorant, pigeonhole someone, AND be insensitive all in one package. All the worse, this person was my supervisor too... They were willing to violate the ADA and not provide reasonable accommodation just to validate that opinion. That was truly an awful time in my life.

I am so sorry. Sometimes it just takes one teacher to spot the signs and help, but too often children are just lumped together and expected to be like everyone else. My son wasn't diagnosed until he was 11 but was in the special ed program before that (he also has TS and was receiving PT/OT/Speech). His teacher allowed him to lay under his desk as long as he was paying attention. Everyone uses different tools to help, even those who are NT. It's so incredibly unfair that you were yelled at. I hope things have improved for you.

I have recurrent pericarditis that means I have to self-inject medication daily to calm my immune system down. I get frequent headaches, nausea, pain and constant fatigue. After one bad spell, four days in bed, a trip to the hospital, and not eating for nearly a week, my friend told me that would be handy to have that, to help her lose weight. I was dumbstruck.

It’s the overwhelming fatigue and pain that drags you down, but otherwise look healthy, but according to some (including family) I’m lazy, or need to do more, have you tried yoga, etc. But you were fine yesterday? They have no idea about post exertional malaise or care to listen to an explanation either.

Since the very young age of 11 I've been suffering from anxiety and depression all the time. People keep saying to me how "quit with the fake depression everybody knows girls can't get depression" and "Why do you cry all the time?" And basically things along the lines of "crybaby" I have so much pressure on my shoulders about being the smart girl. Everyone comes to me for my homework answers or my partner in group protects, and before you ask yes I'm the one doing all the work, and you know how extra credit assignments are optional? My teachers make me do extra credit assignments as homework because of my straight A grades, and they wonder why I'm always so tired and stressed to the point where I'm crying.

I am deaf since birth.

One day, I went to a job fair. I had an ASL interpreter with me, so other people could tell I was deaf. I approached a booth only to read the job description that was placed on the table there. I didn't get a chance to read it because a woman at the booth immediately walked up to me and said, "I'm sorry but we don't hire deaf people."

I have multiple neuropathies (cranial, peripheral, autonomic) due to a demyelinating disorder. I've heard: 1. Why don't to watch your sugars? A lot of sugar makes diabetes worse. (I don't have diabetes, in fact my blood sugar and A1C is always on the low side). 2. I already told you that, why didn't you remember? (I can literally forget what I'm doing while I'm doing it). 3. You've been there before, why can't you remember the way? (I have gotten lost in my own bloody living room. I can tell you, I'm not doing it on purpose and being scared like that is NOT fun).

Both of my children are on the spectrum. My son also has TS. People have asked him why he is making that noise. That is generally okay but it's the WAY that some ask it. Curiosity is great and he loves to inform people, but those that snicker or get angry.. Just no, stop, please just stop. As for my daughter, she is on the lower functioning scale of the spectrum and I had someone seriously say to me "Why don't you just teach that thing something?" This was after I apologized to them for her giggling loudly in a restaurant. She had recently had a cleft repaired and was still learning how to regulate her voice. She didn't even talk until she was nearly 5, so hearing her giggle was like heaven to me.

I have many diagnoses but to be succinct, I will only address the comment that was worst:
Regarding my depression: "we'll go to a cancer ward at a children's hospital and then you will see others have it worse."
What made this the most hurtful was that it was my mother saying this to me when she knew I was suicidal. She then thought it was an appropriate time to bring up how she resented me for saying "dada" instead of "mama" when I was first learning to talk (I was in my mid 20's when this conversation happened).

I suffer from a range of mental disorders like Aspergers/Autism, Severe High Anxiety, Mild Paranoia, Severe Crippling Depression, ADHD, PTSD, Depersonalization Disorder, Psychosis and a few others but you get the picture. My family used to Gas-Light me by telling me I was being being “Over-dramatic” or that I was “Over-exaggerating” when I would talk about something. I was told often enough by my sister that she has Depression and she can work, why can’t I? She doesn’t believe I should be on Disability when I have difficulty even just feeding myself some days.

A lot of people assume I don’t have energy or do a whole lot because “I’m fat” but it’s because my Brain is so overloaded with all that nonsense and my physical disabilities that I just don’t have it in me to even chew food some days.

Illness in any form effects people differently. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean I can or that someone else can.

There are reasons for why people are the way they are or act the way they act. If you’re curious enough, ask and respect the answer. If you’re not, leave them alone and do your own thing instead of saying nasty comments and s**t.

I have Generalised Anxiety Disorder and I survived Anorexia.

Anxiety:
-You just use it to get out of class/I wish I had anxiety so I can get out of class any time I want
-Just calm down (I get this A LOT)
-Have you tried yoga? (Yes and it never works, Chloe.)
-Just take a deep breath in and out (I get the logic but this barely does anything)
-I get it, I always get anxiety before my exams (Valid, but I have a disorder. It doesn't just apply to certain situations)

Anorexia (Please know, these were from people who knew I had anorexia):
-I wish I had your willpower (It's got nothing to do with willpower, love)
-Just make sure you don't gain too much weight back
-I wish I had anorexia so I can get skinny (This one's honestly sad)
-I am so jealous of you! I can never be that committed!
-Why can't you just eat? (VERY common but it is seriously harmful)
-You should try intermittent fasting instead (Yes, lets replace restriction with restriction)
-Can you teach me? (This really saddened me to be honest)
-So you just throw up everything? (Actually, I never did that)
-Oh, so you think I'm fat? (No. Quite the opposite actually)

I think the worst overall was from a friend:
"Oh my god! We get it, you survived anorexia and have anxiety. Everyone has been anorexic and anxious at some point. You always think you are special, but you are not. So, stop being such an attention-seeker and just shut the f**k up."

I spent my early teen years dealing with severe scoliosis, so I have a few pre-surgery and post-surgery.

Pre: My sister used to get onto me for not standing straight in photos, (my spine was literally the shape of an S, I was as straight as I could get) and said I was ruining them all on purpose.

My mom used to constantly joke that I was walking like I was pregnant, when in actuality I was resting my hand directly on my bottom curve.

Post: I had a teacher who threatened to fail me for missing field trip assignments that took place during the middle of my three month recovery from spine surgery. I left the house a grand total of once the entire time, towards the end. To go see a movie on my birthday, and it nearly killed me. Not going to lie, I don’t even know how it all resolved. I freaked out so badly I cannot even remember what happened next, other than she was full of it and wasn’t allowed to fail me.

I also had a gym teacher the next year who I don’t think believed I ever had surgery, despite my doctor's note, and the massive scar on my back, and every other girl in class who I changed out with vouching for me. She just thought I was lazy.

Those were the extremes but I’ve had a few comments on my scar as well.

I have anxiety that I have to take medication for, and when I get any mildly strong emotion or stimuli my hands start flapping and I shake my legs. I have broad shoulders and a big chest for my age (but not at ALL overweight). Here are some things that have been said to me:
- Your embarrassing us! (when I started flapping)
- Kiss your dreams of acting goodbye! No one hires fat people. (after I ate my dessert a little fast)
- My parents always give me the stink eye whenever I flap or “tap-dance” in public
- What the h-e toothpicks (but actually) is wrong with you?!
I know it’s not that bad but it still hurts

I have PTSD, Anxiety, ADHD, depression, and I have some small problems with my legs that make them twitch a lot because of a birth defect.

- You don't need help
- you're fine
- just calm down
- just breathe
- it's weird that you twitch
- Just focus it's not that hard!
- Be more like them!
- Shut up
- be happier

It's really hard with all of these not going to lie, they discourage me a lot
