How many times have you heard “But, you look fine”, or “You don’t look sick!”? There could be nothing further from the truth for someone living with a chronic invisible illness.
Coping with an invisible illness can be frustrating, especially when those closest to you don’t see or understand what you’re going through. An invisible illness is not easily seen or understood by those who are not living with it. Those without the condition may not comprehend what you’re feeling and may not see when you need support. These times can be isolating, and cause feelings of distress.
Invisible Illness Awareness Week
Raising awareness of invisible illnesses is so important. In doing so, we can help others to grasp even just a small part of what we deal with on a daily basis, and hopefully, bring them to a place of understanding and empathy. Join us at Endometriosis.net, as we raise awareness for Invisible Illness Awareness Week, October 15th, 2018 – October 20th, 2018.
