Those of us with invisible illnesses want to be heard. We struggle daily to be as normal as possible but we are no longer normal and we know it. We are in pain. Some physical pain, some mental, all are in very real pain.
So please, if you have a friend or loved one that has an invisible illness, take time to research that illness, become educated. By doing this, you will be showing you care. Just telling us you support us, is not enough. Actions speak louder than words.
