Have any of the people out there thought of the term; ‘invisible illness?”
What does an invisible illness look like?
What does an invisible illness feel like?
My son’s mental illness was invisible. When I injured my shoulders in an accident, I received far more attention that David did. Why? Because I had my arm in some kind of sling and had to keep the arm on a special bolster style pillow for six weeks. David had nothing; no bandages, no sling, no band-aid. No one saw all the tablets he was taking yet his illness affected every part of his life and, every part of our lives as well.
Life with an invisible illness harbors a gamut of emotions. He felt anxious, insecure, frustrated, confused, misunderstood, misrepresented, fearful and emotional. The worst part is that David knew how little people understood because they could not see anything – could not see what was going on inside of his head. And, as one’s head is a part of one’s body, that makes it a physical illness, doesn’t it?
