How do you make someone understand about a disorder or disability that isn't obvious to the naked eye?
I have a neurological disorder called Dyspraxia. At work last night I was struggling, and my supervisor made a comment about how I'll get better in time. I calmly said that no, I wont, I'll most likely get worse due to neuro disorder. Before I could even explain it, she said that of course I will get worse with that attitude. But that anyone who keeps trying can get things to work. Long story short, she basically completely disregarded the fact that I live with the disorder every day of my life, I know my limits, and I know what will happen if I push those limits too much. And that's exactly the situation I was in. I was shaking. I was about to throw up due to pain and anxiety. I was heading towards full blown meltdown. And feel as though she completely disregarded my disorder because it's not an obvious one that you can see just by looking at me. And since it's a newer disorder here, most don't know about it. So blow me off when I say "hey, this is what I have"
