Your pain may be invisible. Your inflammation may be invisible. Your symptoms may be invisible. But you are not!
Anyone who lives with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) knows that some are invisible. They can be debilitating, frustrating, and hinder the quality of life. But when people look from the outside, they don’t see a person living with a (potentially debilitating) disease, but rather a person who seems healthy and well. Good- right?
Well – not exactly.
Living with an invisible disease and suffering from invisible symptoms might add additional problems to the mix. It means that sometimes you need to tell or convince other people that you have a ”real” illness.
You might need to explain yourself to your boss, colleagues, friends, family, or even medical staff. But you don’t need to explain it to us. Here, among the Belong community, you are seen. We not only believe that your pain is real, but we understand, sympathize, and empathize with whatever you are going through.
