National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week, Sept 10-16, 2007, www.invisibleillness.com

I don't know if I've mentioned this here before but I have a chronic illness. Invisible illnesses are far more common that one may think. 96% of the chronic illnesses are invisible. Mine is. FMS (Fibromyalgia) is a debilitating illness that slowly robs me of my energy and in essence, my life.

If you have a friend with an invisible illness, I encourage you to support them however you can.

I have a co-worker who has it, he does pretty good, but tiredness is noticeable.

My mother has it as well, though she doesn't complain or try to show it. I'm proud of her courage.
