It’s no surprise that sometimes people say things they don’t want to–or mean to.

Sometimes people who live with chronic illnesses that have very few external signs are not believed. If people can’t see your disease, they often don’t think you have a disease–and that’s just not true. Lupus has several symptoms that are internal.

So no, it’s not just in your head and you’re not overreacting. Your chronic illness may be an invisible one, but it’s just as real as any other health condition.

Here are 10 facts about lupus you should know.
