Raising Awareness.. Are You Listening, Learning, or Going Posting To Post?

Raising Awareness..

Many people are quick to jump on the band wagon and post on days or months for specific illnesses or "Awareness" !

Why? Why not everyday?

The DO’s & the DONT’s

✅ Raise awareness for every cause, ❌ NOT just when it happens to be an awareness day, week, or month. ❌ NOT just because it affects you or someone you know.

✅ Try to educate yourself on others illnesses, especially those you claim to love or care about, ❌ NOT ignore their condition and think it will go away or belittle them if they have an off day, can’t make it to an outing, event, etc.

✅ Put yourself in someone else’s position. What if you had that illness? How would you want someone to treat you? ❌ Don’t stop inviting them places because they are unreliable. They are reliable, their health is not!

✅ Be an advocate for a cause! ❌ DON’T ignore it. There are many unknown illnesses that are invisible. The more you know and spread the word, you may save a life.

✅ Be living, kind, and gentle with your actions and words. ❌ DON’T talk down to someone with a chronic illness or remind them of how they “used” to be. They are aware. They likely hate their bodies because it has taken away that identity.

❌STOP EXPECTING SO MUCH WHEN YOU DO SO LITTLE

❌ DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO REACH OUT, likely they are dealing with pain, loneliness, seclusion.

✅ Check on them. If they say they are fine, are they really?

BE A SUPPORTER AND NOT A SUCKER

Colorful Chaos The Journey

Not everything is always in black and white. Join us on our journey as we battle incurable invisible illnesses. We are seeking mental freedom as we prepare to unwind and unravel amongst nature. We raise awareness for Polycythemia Vera and Invisible Illnesses such as Mental Health, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, along with a variety of other “silent” struggles that we may deal with along the way. We are not going to let these illnesses hold us down. During our journey we need support. The support of each other, family, friends, followers, readers, and fellow, adventures! Enjoy our photography and stories. You can support us through PayPal and our Esty Shop!
