What do you think of when you hear someone is sick?

  •  Cold
  •  Flu
  • Virus
  • Tummy ache

Yeah these things but do you think of the things that people don't "get over"? things they can't take a pill for to no longer have their sicknesses?
 Chronic Conditions such as 
  • Depression
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Cancer
  • Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia (chronic pain)

Most people don't. Yeah for some of these, medications can help. But then you can get a flare up and no amount of medications can touch the pain, or shortness of breathe, or palpitations or any other symptom you might be having.

And within those chronic conditions are the invisible diseases, those that can only be seen by echo, ultrasound, or x-ray. 

You can add all those conditions up there to the list of invisible diseases! 

So if you see someone getting out of their car in a handicapped space and they don't LOOK disabled, believe me, they probably are!!! You can ask if you want, but dont yell scream or berate them. it makes having an invisible chronic "sickness" all that harder!!!
