I’m not having a good week, so I haven’t worn my human mask much. But I did recently share THIS POST about Making Invisible Illness Visible. LonBonLonLon on Tumblr is trying to get the hashtag #MyInvisiblePain to trend, and I’m trying to get #MyPainFace to trend. So I thought I’d do a little of both this morning…
Here is #MyPainFace from this past February, playing in the snow until the brightness got to me.
And here is #MyInvisiblePain … the things you can’t see going on with me, but I assure you were happening in this picture. I’m not squinting to be cute.
That’s just from the neck up, really. I left off things like nausea and dizziness because I couldn’t figure out how to illustrate them.
Share your lovely face with the world. Show everyone that people who are suffering can look like everyone else! Tag your photo #MyPainFace on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Instagram!
Or get to doodling, and share your symptoms to help spread awareness of invisible illnesses! Use #MyInvisiblePain on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or Instagram!
