"Skipping one meal is not foundation,
faking a suicide attempt is not eyeshadow,
getting nervous and calling it anxiety is not eyeliner,
and being sad and calling it depression is not lipstick.
Mental illness is not makeup.
You cannot just put it on and take it off at will,
to make people look at you differently,
or treat you better.
And believe me,
if you could just put it on and take it off,
I’d be cleansing every last inch of my skin."

Dysautonomia awareness shirt came. Dysautonomia is the malfunctioning of the autonomic nervous system. That controls everything we don’t think about, like blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, temp, etc. There are different forms of dysautonomia. Symptoms can be disabling, many people can’t work or go to school. It can cause extreme fatigue, dizzyness, fainting, pain, nausea, being light headed, vertigo, heat intolerance, trouble breathing, chest pain, and many times there are different illnesses that come along with dysautonomia, like EDS, gastroparesis and autoimmune diseases. But I bet you’ve never heard of it. We need more awareness.
