*THIS IS IN NO WAY A ‘PITY PLEA’ AND I’M NOT BEING NEGATIVE, I JUST WANT PEOPLE TO BE AWARE OF HOW HARD IT CAN BE FOR PEOPLE WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESSES*

After seeing the post on Facebook (shown above) I have decided I shall take part & so every time I see a photo opportunity of #MyInvisibleFight I shall post the picture on instagram & here on my blog site which will then share to Facebook & twitter!

If you know me, are close to me & think this will be too upsetting for you then stop reading now.

My intention isn’t to upset people, nor is it to make people feel sorry for me or others with Invisible illnesses. We don’t need a ‘Pity party’ we just want people to understand & realise how hard it can be for us! How incredible we are! How strong we have to be!

To be honest, this is quite a good ‘pick me up’ for me as I often forget the challenges I have & still do overcome!

My first photo is about Pain! We have all felt pain at some point in our lives but most have the pleasure, yes pleasure of that pain being short lived! Have you ever seen pain?
This is the first of #MyInvisibleFight I am never pain free! Some days I ‘cope’ with the pain better than others but that doesn’t mean I’m in less pain! The pain is still the same, it still grinds me down. Like I said, the difference is how I cope with it!

I wake up, I hurt! I need to move, how much will it hurt me to swing my legs out of the bed & sit myself on the edge?
I have to do it, deep breath!
Yeah that hurts! My whole body! Is this what it feels like to have full blown flu? No, it’s worse!

Okay so I’m up & I’m ready
I’m still in as much pain if not more from all of the moving around I’ve been doing but now I’m really focused! It’s time for Pilates! #addict!

It doesn’t end there, when my partner is home from work we then go to the gym for a 30 minute workout!

My pain eases when I exercise! I push myself everyday to do these things because I know that whilst I’m doing them my pain decreases about 10% and afterwards for about 3/4 hours I’m in 50% less pain!

That might not seem much but you tell me when u suffer with chronic pain all day every day if it is worth the push!

The picture below shows it is! Pic to the left was last year…Before pilates, pic to the right was yesterday, 7 months at pilates

One thought on “#MyInvisibleFight

  1. I go through the same routine every morning. My family doesn’t realize that getting up and out of bed is exhausting because of the pain. They don’t fully get why I need to catch a second breath after just waking up. All they know is that I have to.
