everyone should read this. It applies to every invisible illness, and talks about all of them, not just MS. and MS is horrible and an ivisible illness that people who don't have understand, just like chronic pain and chronic fatigue and the side effects of epilepsy.
I created a Facebook page dedicated to Invisible Illness. I am trying to spread the word. Yes I know it seems pointless. But since I can't work or go back to school. I need a hobby and something productive to do. Besides just being a SAHM. I love that part of my life, But I have to have something else too. SO..
Its not much. I just started today. Anyone can add stuff. And if I missed an illness feel free to add it or PM the message box of FB it goes straight to my personal FB.
I have severe Graves Disease. People just think I am too small (102 lbs). They have no clue. Its hell

Thanks for sharing. I will read it.
I am in the process of being diagnosed with MS.
Current diagnosis is "demyelinating disease" until I can get the MRI to confirm MS.
On the outside I look healthy, but you can't see that I haven't felt my left leg in over 2 years, the weakness all over, my vision issues, and everything else.
Your all welcome. I have been diagnosed with Epilepsy, chronic pain. and they still haven't figured out everything else wrong with me. That's just the start. My sister was diagnosed with systemic lupus. I think many people don't understand that just because we look healthy and they might see us up walking around, doesn't mean that we aren't going through hell. It just means that we are just choosing to try to fight to live our lives as normal as possible.
