The Walmart and TJ Maxx shoppers praised her for her kindness.

The Truth About Sia
Back in October, Sia revealed on Twitter that she suffers from a neurological disease and ehlers danlos. She came forward to let fans who face chronic pain daily that they are not alone.
"Hey, I'm suffering from chronic pain, a neurological disease, ehlers danlos and I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going. Life is f– hard," she tweeted last month. "Pain is demoralizing, and you're not alone."
She said her neuralgia was caused by a routine surgery a few years ago and was incorrectly diagnosed with bipolar 2."Oh yeah, herniated c6-7 c4-5 and cubitle tunnel syndrome. No STDs, which frankly, is miraculous given my twenties. so... Plenty of people suffering more than me. At least I have resources," Sia wrote. "I really feel for those struggling w/the healthcare system. KEEP GOING!"
