I hate when people joke about those who have illness. I don’t know why people consider Costochondritis as a joke. Well, it’s NOT funny. My “friends” laugh at me when I say it attacks and when I say my ribs are aching. They think I’m just joking. There’s nothing funny about ribs. People who have costochondritis are the only one who can understand my situation. It sucks when people joke about it. People don’t know how I feel when it attacks. My movement is just limited. I can’t breathe properly and sometimes my chest and back are aching at the same time. If they were in my place, I’d like to see if they can still laugh about it.
