Invisible Illnesses Inc aims to support those with an Invisible Illness.
We provide support and education for people diagnosed with chronic pain, depression, chronic fatigue and other invisible conditions. We support each other by being involved with different events and forums. We can observe how wonderful we are all looking; confirming for all of us that it is possible to live a good life despite the diagnosis of an invisible condition.
Educate health professionals in the management of symptoms of different conditions. We are increasing the knowledge base of many health professionals by being the face of Fibromyalgia at our medical consultations, by asking difficult questions and by requiring answers and referrals.
Increase community awareness of the implications of a diagnosis of an invisible condition. Increasing community awareness is an ever-moving invisible force that again comes from us as we talk to our neighbours, friends, family and work colleagues. Anybody really! We need to talk about what an invisible illness is; we need to educate our communities that for many of us with this condition, we may not always be at our best, at our most reliable. We have to overcome the stigma of our supposed hypochondria and educate the uneducated in this matter. This is what increases community awareness.
However, our efforts alone are not enough to solve making different conditions in the community visible. We are in need of financial support to fund our efforts in our continued goal to raise awareness and support those with an Invisible Illness in the community. This is why your membership fee is so important to us
