invisible illness

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month.
Do you know someone with MS? I bet you do. More than likely at some point in your life you have encountered someone who has had MS.

It's known as the invisible illness because in many cases you from the outside, everything seems normal.
That is unless you are the person living with it.
Every day, every day is a battle, emotionally and mentally draining.
Can you imagine fighting an ongoing war with your own body?
For the amount of people who battle this disease on a daily basis, it's not talked about enough, not funded enough, and we are not informed enough about it. Watching someone who has it, living so lovingly and joyful from the outside, and knowing their pain on the inside, that is true strength. True hope. True fight. True inspiration.
Wear orange this month and support the fight to cure MS!
