Chronic illness

My sister is a cystic fibrosis warrior,and my mother suffers from fibromyalgia and polyarthritis. One of the reasons why those are really hard battles is because most of the time they are invisible.
This week  we  have gotten together to create awareness around chronic illnesses.
– A chronic illness is a long term health condition which may not necessarily have a cure.
– Most Chronic illness are invisible but is not imaginary.
– Most chronically ill persons live a very lonely and isolated life as symptoms can be extremely debilitating – some have become bedridden and housebound.
– There are more than twenty different chronic illnesses. The most common among them are Lupus, Fibromyalgia,
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/CFS, EDS, Lyme disease and many more.
– The best one person can do for a chronically ill person is to believe them.
