Living With Invisible Illness

It's hard to explain to someone who has no idea of the
daily struggles you face. Feeling pain, feeling unwell, feeling awful
on the inside whilst looking perfectly fine on the outside.
Putting on a brave face for everyone.

Please share this on your status if you, or someone close to you,
has an invisible illness. There are many forms -
Chron's, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Diabetes, Lupus,
Fybromyalgia, MS, ME, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease,
Epilepsy, Autism, Alzheimers and the many
other types of invisible illness coped with daily.

Never Judge What You Don't Understand

I just feel like what's the point anymore! I'm so sick of being alone. The only two ppl that ever cared for are no longer here & i just know life would so much better if i were with them!

You are in my prayers. You don't have to do this if you don't want to, but, if you don't mind passing it forward to anyone who needs prayers as well. God bless!

tracey, hang in there. You are worth it. You never know when life will take its turn for the better. Bad times in life pass, just as the good times do. Be kind to yourself and continue to let others know how you feel..Your story of struggle and success may just help others out in the future. God Bless you. Steve K

Thank you for such a positive post, spin on what some of deal with on a daily basis. Some illness, ailments, are not seen by others, and having seen others reaction for just parking in a handicap spot.

I have lost my mom, my fiance in a year and a half. I have two wonderful dogs, but in Tracey's defense, it doesn't help feel the gap for those you lost. My dogs are my best friends, but they can't feel that one type pain, they help tremendously. If you need someone to talk to day or night, under fb as Reba McCaffrey, private inbox me and will give you my number. I feel your pain! Love in Christ...Reba.

They say a person can die from loneliness. I believe this to be true and that I am slowly dieing. So much anxiety and depression. Just know that you're not alone. There are many suffering along with you.

I feel that way at times, but you have to remember, there is a reason we are here yet, and maybe there is something you are needed for... you just haven't figured it out yet! do what you love, either as your job-- if you are lucky enough, or do what you love when you aren't working. It is affecting people around you, and you DO make a difference. :) you are here for a reason!

I do understand, too. I've suffered from depression and with intense stresses, it gets pretty bad. However, it always gets better.
Not to sell anything, but if you aren't familiar with doTERRA oils, I pack one around called Elevation and when I start getting those helpless feelings, I put a drop of that oil in my hands, rub, and breath it in over and over and it helps immensely.
I run it in my 13 y.o. boy's room with a diffuser and I don't have the problems I was having with him, being down and angry because of it.
I think it is easy for those who don't have depression to dismiss it, because they don't understand how it feels. But it is real and remember that you are not alone.
When you get these feelings, remember that there are people who love you and as much pain as you're going through, it would pain those who love you even more if something were to happen to you. You do matter and your life is precious - even if it doesn't feel like it.
Prayers be with you and anyone reading this who get these feelings, that you may feel the comfort of love and of importance. You are loved.

How do you help someone who has sever anxiety and depression. He refuses all help and is very unhappy. He stays in his room all day.

I also has a secret holds locked inside as anyone who actually read my Google+ would have found out about me.. "My life will never be perfect. I been doing it for almost 15 years to me.. Nobody knows it but me. It's like a clown i put on a show and the pain is real, even if nobody knows.Why didn't i say the things i needed to say.The time is teaching in a hard way, too many lessons at one time, breaking up into pieces, seems like slept for a long time and woke up in a different world, can't recognize anyone, everything looks changed
