After Stranger Leaves Angry Note, This Woman Makes An Important Point About Illnesses That Aren't 'Visible'

By B. Miller

A young lady by the name of Yasmin Swift just delivered an important reminder about not judging a book by its cover.

Her reminder came after she received an angry letter on her car's windshield.

"You are parked illegaly. You are NOT DISABLED. I will inform authorities accordingly."

But Swift, in fact, suffers from Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. 

According to Health Line, idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) is a "lung disorder characterized by high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. In this instance, 'idiopathic' means that the cause of the pulmonary artery hypertension is unknown."

Symptoms of IPAH can vary based on severity, but can include shortness of breath, fainting, dizziness, chest pain and heart palpitations. Swift's battle with IPAH became so severe that she had to take six months off of school. Her illness warrants her the use of a disabled parking badge which she even had displayed on her dashboard when the note was left. 

Here is a picture of her with her badge.
