#MyPainFace & #MyInvisiblePain : Two Fun, Easy Ways to Spread Awareness

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!

    • I’ve seen a lot of people do it and it was a very cathartic way to think about my pain visually. It’s so difficult to describe how things feel. Doctors always use the standard words like sharp, stabbing, throbbing, burning, dull. It’s so much more than that. Thank you!
