Let’s think about the term “INVISIBLE ILLNESS”.
Not just a distant concept, it has the potential - though I pray it never once touches you - to affect any and all of us. To change a life in less than a split-second. To forever alter and shift your perspective in both positive and negative ways. And that’s whether you’re the person affected, a caregiver, or simply a friend and support system.
Look around! Open your eyes! Are you perhaps “looking but not seeing” what a loved one might need?
Attempt the practice of being kind - ALWAYS! For we never know what others are going through. From severe Chronic Pain to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or even depression from lingering grief for the death of a loved one, young or old.
Invisible Illnesses and difficulties are faced everyday by those we’d least expect.
Life is hard! Why make it harder on the ones that we so adore? Life is about stretching ourselves to be better people. Let’s start with this lesson! :)
Happy Monday, everyone! Big love - Danni
Oooh! And just one more thing..! I’m so excited to be posting regularly to both my Pinterest and Instagram accounts! Let’s connect! Both are SUPER active with lots of fun stuff. For example, on my Pinterest, find CRPS/RSD inspired beauty tips as well as easy crafts to occupy your mind and time during dreaded pain flares! And on Instagram, follow along as I attempt to live life to the fullest despite my very own Invisible Illness.
So, come and join me! My account name on both sites is (of course!) ‘theproject3x5’. Or, to make things super easy, you can go ahead and just click on the any of the links in this blog post. Easy-Peasy, right? No excuses ;) I’ll see you there! xx
