An invisible illness has its difficult side, because no one knows I'm sick. But that is actually preferable. There are people that have been burned beyond recognition and survived only to be viewed as a scary monster. Dealing with an invisible illness and a total change in body image is a most difficult situation and I thank God I don't have that to deal with too. So I am grateful that I don't have more challenges than I already have. I don't seek sympathy; it's empathy and understanding that I want. Just some understanding goes a long way toward feeling a part of something and not feeling so all alone with the burdens that I bear. I think it's probably the same for you too. We are all in this eye of an invisible storm that no one else can see.
So as we raise awareness for invisible illness, I know I'm in good company and that in itself is comforting. I'm so sorry you are so sick, but I sure appreciate your company. Take good care and may you find peace in each day.
