I got asked to write an article for Richmond Aid on Invisible Illness, though I cannot share that with you at present (as it is yet to be published), I can however share this fabulous image which really depicts how many people suffering from an Invisible Illness perceive be it correctly or incorrectly how others view them.

Being empowered by understanding for example chronic pain which is a spin off of so many Invisible Illness’s is essential as it empowers and gives one confidence to manage ones own anxities and fears with what one is suffering. Β This way we can help others understand what we are going through.

  1. Although Celiac Disease is nothing like a mental illness, it does share a similarity, in that it cannot be visibly seen (aside from eczema) – just because you cannot see it, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist and shouldn’t be taken seriously. I look forward to reading your article, Justine, when it is published πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ It was nice to be asked and hopefully it will be of help to someone at least and yes your right there are a multitude of physical and or mental illnesses that cannot be seen, so many it is scary and wider knowledge and understanding would be a great thing πŸ™‚ x

      1. Totally agree! Thanks to bloggers like you, Justine, awareness is being spread, and hopefully knowledge and understanding; rather than fear or discrimination will start happening. I will also post something on my blog this month about celiac disease and mental illness.
