The Photo That Shows My Everyday Life With an Invisible Illness | The Mighty ** shared 

What I would like to say…

There are many photos I wish I could post about my condition. I want people to understand what it’s like to be chronically ill – to have deep fatigue, brain fog, aches, pains, depression, and a myriad of other symptoms that you have to push aside each day. I put on a smile to hide my weariness that words can’t really describe.

“My illness is invisible, which is both a blessing and a curse. An invisible illness, meaning one that ordinary people wouldn’t realize based on your appearance and lifestyle, is a blessing because I can have moments where I pretend to be “normal” and have a regular, healthy life like so many people take for granted. But on the other hand, an invisible illness is also a curse because it becomes so much harder to explain to people about my condition and harder for them to understand that I truly don’t feel well.”
