Invisible Illness Week

It is Invisible Illness Week. I was so hoping I wouldn't miss it this year and I didn't! YAY!
This week is to help educate people about illnesses that are not visible to the eye, like Chronic Pain. Though, I do not believe that chronic pain is completely invisible because there are signs which are very visible if a person bothers to look for them. I wrote an essay/post about that a while back and you can view it here.

Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
