INVISIBLE ILLNESS tells the stories of people living with an 'invisible illness', whether it’s chronic pain, Crohn’s, Lyme, SIBO, PTSD, infertility, or any of the many other illnesses or conditions not visible or obvious on the outside. These stories need to be shared. Stories of hope and resilience, courage and perseverance, and above all, a sense of community and belonging that is sorely needed. Not only stories from those suffering, but from the people supporting and healing those who live with invisible illness.
These and other conditions and illnesses don't necessarily manifest themselves in such a way where you can easily see the pain a person is suffering. This often results in friends, family, and even the medical community doubting or even dismissing the individual. So not only is the illness 'invisible,' often the person suffering feels invisible and invalidated.
