Invisible Illnesses

People with invisible illnesses often suffer in silence. Our diseases are not seen, we don’t hide them, they just aren’t noticed. We look normal to everyone else. But on the inside, we cringe when our someone drives by with the bass playing so loudly it thumps in our head. We stay indoors because the light is too strong and causes pain. We retreat from activity because its too painful or it makes our vertigo worse….

I have Invisible Illnesses:

Chronic Pain
Meniere’s Disease (courtesy of a great-great-grandfather on my father’s side)
Migraine with Aura
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)
Hypothyroidism

There are tons of support groups online and in person that will help. I choose online because my eyesight is poor and I don’t drive.
