Invisible Illness Week

I found out via Jen’s Place in the Blogosphere that it was National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week a couple weeks ago. I am (as I am usually) a little late to this party, but given that awareness is one of those things that shouldn’t really be limited to a week, I figure there’s no harm in suggesting you bloggers out there contribute your thoughts via this 30-point meme.

[PS — The new and improved DF layout lets me post “asides” in addition to full-blown entries. Pretty cool, right?]

  1. Thanks for mentioning my blog, and Invisible Illness Awareness! I think that we need all the awareness we can get, and it makes sense for mental illness to be included in the “invisible illness awareness” efforts, since, after all, ours is pretty damned invisible to most of the population! I have other, physical invisible illnesses, so I was already into these efforts in the past before I was ever diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder, but since I know how the combo of both, I try to link up with any invisible illness awareness efforts I come across, and I try to make sure people know that their invisible illness efforts relate to mental illnesses too, and not just things like autoimmune diseases. Many of us have both.
