How I navigate feelings of guilt that my invisible illnesses perpetuates
Nadia-Jasmine Schmidtke

Wow! I am literally going through the exact same thing. I am also exactly like you. On the outside I probably look great to everyone else; yet on the inside, more often than not, I feel like I am trapped inside a body that prevents me from doing what I once used to love and even being the person I used to be before. What is crazy is when you have those few times of feeling “well” where you are productive and able to do a little more than you usually can; it’s almost as if people look at you like “hmmm, she looks fine to me….” But in fact, it’s only a brief reprieve of chronic debilitating illness(es). Your personal story really hit home for me. Thank you so much for sharing!
