When I stop to think of all the things I've learned since joining the blogging community, I could quickly become overwhelmed. It's all good mind you. I've learned it's possible to grow my own mushrooms on a log, how easy it is to make laundry soap and that you can buy diapers for chickens. Mercy!
Good things and funny things, yes, but I've also learned some serious things. Life changing things that have an impact on so many people yet are rarely ever discussed. I'm talking about invisible illness. The common phrase 'out of sight, out of mind' has likely never been more true than when it comes to dealing with an invisible illness. I won't pretend I know what it's like to deal with an invisible illness, but I am starting to appreciate how life altering it can be for those who live with chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia, loneliness and more, day in and day out.
This week is Invisible Illness Awareness Week. Want to learn more? Please visit here.
Or perhaps you would like to learn first hand from someone who struggles regularly with an invisible illness? Then please visit Misha and her guests as they sit on her front porch and share their stories with everyone passing by. And please, drop them a note of encouragement, it isn't easy to share a story that most don't want to hear and, also, because every battle is better served with friendship, caring and hope.
