Lots of us have an invisible illness yet there is so little understanding from people that are dealing with these issues.
Having invisible illness makes me feel that I am invisible as a person. I can’t always go out and be social or even get out doing the normal things, so friends or family soon get fed up of me canceling plans or saying, ‘Sorry I can’t do that or can’t walk that far.’
Soon they stop asking and you end up feeling just as invisible as the illness is.
I also experienced this because you cant see my pain you don’t think it is there. I walk with a walking stick if I do go out as I need the support; needing a seat on a train no one helped me or gave me a seat.
Asking if I could use a seat I was ignored as if I was not there. I am not one to cause an issue or scene and I continued to stand there with my stick just hoping I soon get a seat.
I felt Invisible and I know I will continue feeling this way until there is more understanding in the world of invisible illnesses.
I am not Invisible and nor are you. There are people who do understand and do care even if we do not see those people in our day to day life.
What helped me a lot is making friends and connecting with people online. I know a lot of people are not sure with social media but for me, there are lots of pluses. Lots of things you can do and be uplifting to you.
I come across groups of for Christians or groups regarding my illnesses these are a good step to find some people that are encouraging and understanding of how I am feeling.
I love to listen to radio programs my favourite is Be Inspired With Shoggy Tosh on Salt FM Uk, find him really uplifting and watching him via Live on Facebook you really feel that you are there with him.
God has a purpose for us and in time this will show. He is for me and now I am writing and still connecting with people all over the world who loves God. This for me is encouraging and listening to other people’s testimonies or supporting their music and their work for God.
“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.” Psalm 138:8
I know God is there for me and he sees my pain, and for me, I keep remembering this. This keeps me going, when I can not cope, God is there carrying me through my struggles, when I feel alone I cry out to him. I feel less lonely having God in my life.
