Invisible Illness

Thanks to: http://chronicchroniclesblog.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/day-3-wordless-wednesday-hawmc/ for posting this picture & speaking about his condition. Thanks for sharing! This was so poignant and true for many illnesses & diseases- especially of course mental health ones.

It is hard for people to accept at times the PAIN of trauma & depression, for instance, because on the outside a person can look so put together they think that that qualifies them as ‘okay.’ But no one can see the pain another goes through under their skin– whether it is in their joints physically or in the haunting memories or heavy-headedness of the blurred reality depression imposes.
