Millions of people in the world are living with illnesses that affect their everyday lives and we have no idea they are suffering. Some feel it as soon as they wakeup in the morning and others don’t feel it until they get moving. Others can go all day long and be blindsided. It can make the easiest tasks of even just brushing your hair or getting dressed.

When your friends ask you to go out and you want to go but you just don’t have the energy and don’t feel greet and you have to cancel again. Or when you’re determined to go out and not let it ruin your night and suffer even more after the fact because you didn’t want to stay home again.

Invisible illnesses are much more common than you might think, so just know you’re not alone. You have to take it one day at a time, but you can do this. Your disease does not define you. You are doing the best you can and you are stronger than this.
