New York New York #IIW2015

So from September 29th - October 4th, people around the world are coming together to raise awareness of invisible illnesses i.e. those disabling, debilitating conditions that remain hidden from the naked eye.

The 'but you don't look sick' sufferers, who go misunderstood.

This year I was asked to take part in the 'suffering in silence' campaign. Aiming to put these invisible fights into the spotlight.

I'm really flattered to have been involved and to have had my face and writing displayed in New York :) eeeek feeling proud...

Obviously as the majority of my followers are based in the UK, you wont have got to see it.
So without further delay...

If we ditch the invisible element of the term 'invisible illness' we're left with no more and no less than an illness. Just like any other.. We accept it as a part of us, without letting it define all that we are. We keep fighting, because we have to and because not looking sick doesn't mean that we're not. You can't see it but I'm strong. Charlotte Wells, UK Invisible illness week 2015 Invisible fight New York City The suffering in silence campaign.

Occasionally I like to say something smart, you know remind people my brain still works.

Just because you can't see something doesn't mean its not there.

I have lots of exciting things coming up...Are you following on Youtube? Click here for my latest videos.
