I would like to preface this post by saying that we are not calling anyone out or mad/upset with anyone. However, I am posting this to bring awareness to INVISIBLE ILLNESSES, Disabilities, Diseases, Conditions, … and help to stop people from mocking and laughing at people for things beyond their control.
We are not ashamed to talk about our INVISIBLE ILLNESSES. If you are wondering What is Gastroparesis? then click here to read our first blog. If you have any questions or do not understand what is going on, then just ask and we will gladly answer you the very best that we can, but please do not assume anything.
True pain can only be experienced by the person that is hurting. To those who do not know the whole story or have felt the pain that we feel, please come walk in our shoes. Until you have watched someone you love struggle to make it through the day, then do not question whether or not it is real!! Until you know what is going on in another persons life, then keep your cruel comments and opinions to yourself. Until you can not do the “NORMAL” things, then do not take like for granted. It is a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside.
We are counting on you, our friends and family members, to help us get the word out about the INVISIBLE ILLNESSES that people face. I know that most, if not all, of you would be there for us when we need something, no matter what; but, for those that do not know about these INVISIBLE ILLNESSES please take a moment and look at our More News Page to learn about what Kirsten and those like her, with INVISIBLE ILLNESSES, face on a daily basis.
