Anonymous Person Leaves Heartless Note for Woman Parked in a Handicap Space

A woman in Arkansas received a mean note on her car for parking in a handicap spot. Julie McGovern shared her story in a Facebook post, and the note read "Faker." The anonymous person accused her of faking a disability. Yet, McGovern suffers from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). McGovern wrote, “I thought my excessive fatigue, sore throat, headache, and overall sickness was due to being a freshman living in the dorms. It is not uncommon to get sick in that environment. However, my symptoms progressed and I went to the Dr. As soon as I learned about the mono, I immediately stopped these activities. My physician believed because of the mono and my continued activity, the mono destroyed my autonomic system, which controls all things in the body that are automatic. This illness affects literally every organ in the body."

POTS means that your blood pressure can quickly drops to dangerously low levels, and your heart rate can suddenly gain a dramatic increase. McGovern added “People think I look fine, so I am not sick. It isn't that I'm looking for sympathy, but respect and compassion. I was hurt, I was angry, I wanted my voice to be heard, but this person is a coward and could not tell me what he/she thought to my face. This person incorrectly perceived my situation, because it is impossible for someone my age to have an illness. This person doesn't know me or my struggles. They don't know what this illness has taken from me. They don't see the countless nights I cry myself to sleep, soaking my pillow with tears, pleading – praying for God to heal me."

Her post soon went viral and gained over 1,000 shares. One reader wrote “I'm so sorry that you had to go through this, but you know how real this illness is, and there are plenty of people in this world who will always be committed to misunderstanding other people's situations."
