Battling an invisible Monster…

So well said ….. dear Patty!! Happens all the time … not right!!!



Today, I would like to tell you a bit about the invisible Monsters you can encounter.

They are called Chronic Conditions or Invisible Illnesses.

This monster likes to hide for the outside and tortures it’s victims where no one can see.

There are variable forms of this monster.

A couple of examples:

  • Crohns
  • HMS
  • Lupus
  • Fibromyalgia
  • MS
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Bipolar
  • And lots and lots more!

This monster even comes out as Depression or PTSD I wrote about earlier. (click the words for those articles)


First of all, let’s see what the specialists can tell us about this monster:

Invisible disabilities are disabilities that are not immediately apparent.

Invisible disabilities are chronic illnesses and conditions that significantly impair normal activities of daily living. In the United States, 96% of people with chronic medical conditions show no outward signs of their illness, and 10% experience symptoms that are considered disabling.
