What Is “Invisible Illness”?
You look “normal” to the casual observer. Smiling. Laughing. Living.
On the inside, you’re struggling, you feel broken and are battling a relentless storm.
You’re misunderstood, misdiagnosed and invalidated.
You feel … alone.
But you are not alone. And we want to inspire you and help connect you to a community of men and women who know exactly what you’re going through.
Your illness may be invisible, but you don’t have to be.
Can you relate? Are you or a loved one suffering from an invisible illness? A physical and/or psychological ailment that has varying degrees of repercussions on a person’s life. It might be chronic pain, Crohn’s, Lyme, SIBO, PTSD, or any other illness not visible or obvious on the outside.
To make matters worse, our healthcare systems doesn’t have the resources or answers. Often doctors are either clueless or careless when it comes to diagnosing and/or treating people living with an invisible illness. Imagine the frustration involved with doctors repeatedly telling you “You’re fine”, when your body is telling you otherwise. Or worse, they prescribe treatment that exacerbates your condition.
