Do you have a chronic illness?
- Crohn's Disease
- Heart Disease
- and more
Then you probably have...
- Financial stress
- Relationship stress
- Medical stress
- Stressful emotions
- Uncertainty about the future
- Discrimination at work
- Lack of social support
- Diet stress
You may not have a diagnosis, and the root cause may remain unknown, but what is known is that everyday life can seem like a struggle; unending fatigue and tiredness, foggy brain, reactions or changes with eating certain foods that never have caused an issue, and just not having the same amount of energy to use for everyday life.
You might look ”fine” and those around you may wonder why you don’t ‘just step up.' You know, at your core, that it's not that simple. It can feel near impossible to figure out a ”formula” for success: one-part healthy environment, two-parts tools, skills, and resources, finish with a dash of support.
However, invisible illnesses are real, and they are a rapidly increasing issue across our society. In fact, ”more than 133 million Americans, or about 45% of the population, have at least one chronic condition. These conditions include arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular (heart) disease, depression, and diabetes, although these are only a few.”
