My mother has CFIDS and has gotten the state-approved placard. I have seen people give her dirty looks, and I’ve seen people be very understanding (CFIDS is rarely visible to observers).

My opinion: People are going to react to you according to their own notions of what “disabled” means, but if I see you with it in a “handicapped” parking spot, I’m going to assume you feel it’s justified, regardless of my initial reaction.
