skewed by suspicion

Why do you have expectations
Of how health should look or act
You don't live in my symptoms
Health isn't linear and we aren't twins
Who taught you to doubt me
To question a wheelchair or cane
Eager to catch me in the act
Of some malingering performance 

Why am I guilty until proven innocent
Your view is skewed by suspicion
Outright assuming I must be lying
Making it up to gain attention

Who wants to living in this picture
Putting on a long con for strangers 
Getting all this negative attention
Living outside socially acceptable

Why do you think you are special 
That I'm makings it up for you
That you know the ultimate truth
That you know me better than me.
