We all know medical ribbons. There are dozens of colors representing medical conditions: Pink for breast cancer, red for heart disease, green for cerebral palsy, purple for Crohn’s. There actually are dozens of medical conditions represented by each color. These bring awareness and education to the world. Awareness weeks and months exist for the same reason. Oct. 15-21 was Invisible Disabilities Awareness week. What is an invisible disease or disability? Simply put, a medical condition that doesn’t necessarily affect your appearance, but significantly affects your body’s ability to do normal daily activities. Having an invisible medical condition (or conditions) comes with many challenges. I’ve written about invisible conditions and disabilities in the past — what they are, how they are perceived. This time, I'm focusing on how those debilitating conditions get in the way of life’s plans and how they make me feel.
