This girl reveals how she stood up to social media bullies. After getting fed up watching people judge each other’s appearance, she decided to do something about it and uncovers what she’s been hiding for a while.
People say this has been going viral for all the wrong reasons, and it’s all because of what’s under her skirt. Aimee looks like your typical girl from England, but she’s far from it.
As she explains, she suffers from what many call an “invisible illness,” but that isn’t quite accurate. In fact, her “disability” is actually rather visible but Aimee does a good job of hiding it underneath her skirt.
“I have Crohn’s disease, it’s a serious incurable illness that nearly killed me, not just a stomachache like most people seem to think,” Aimee revealed. “My Crohn’s has left me with a permanent ileostomy, no large intestine, colon, rectum, anus, or inner thigh muscles as they were used for plastic surgery on my wounds.”
Although she states that she’s accepted what has happened to her, she says that others who suffer the illness have a really difficult time with it all. Hoping to empower others with Crohn’s – or other “invisible illnesses” for that matter – she simply states, “No one will know unless you tell them.”
Proving just that, Aimee’s photos depict not only what she looks like on a daily basis but her secret as well. As can be seen in the other two images, Aimee shows both her scars she references from where her muscle was taken for plastic surgery and her colostomy bag.
In short, Aimee hopes that by sharing what she’s been hiding under her skirt for so long, it will help others accept what they too can’t control. “People who know will still love you and still find you beautiful,” she lastly wrote. “Your illness is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.”
It’s sad that people are so unhappy and insecure that they prey on others’ self-worth as well. I wish I could tell them it’s not putting others down that will make you feel better, instead, they should try to be kind and loving. When all you do is look at the negative that leads to a VERY unhappy life. Judging people is one of the worst self-destructing habits out there.
