Ignorance is So Dangerous!

Sickness shouldn't be viewed as a weakness! Just because you can't see it doesn't mean that I'm not hurting just as much, if not more, than anyone out there is! That type of ignorance is so dangerous. Unfortunately, there is so much more ignorance I begin to feel ignorant for not recognizing it sooner! And this is my view point. I'll start the conversation. It's your job to continue the conversation... If you don't continue the conversation. If you bat a blind eye. That's just ignorant!
