I’m so sick of being stereotyped because of my age. Stop telling me I’m too young to be sick. No one is too young to be sick. I’m told this by everyone, including doctors. Yes doctors. The people that are supposed to help you. I’m written off and pushed aside in the medical field because this “couldn’t possibly be happening to me, you’re too young.” Enough. I’m not a number, I’m a person and I matter.
With the internet at our full exposal, ignorance shouldn’t even exist in our generation. Stop playing candy crush and editing your instagram photos past recognition and educate yourself on stuff that matters. The stuff that burns with controversy, because there’s a reason for it and you should know what you stand for. Not just take someone’s word for it. People fought and died for the knowledge we have at our fingertips, not the same watered down bullshit they tought you every year in history class. You owe it to yourself to KNOW.
