Join us at our Invisible Illness Awareness Week Facebook page on Wednesday at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST (USA) . We’re going to talk about how illness has a way of confusing simple matters like appearance and should we try to keep looking good–or not? We generally don’t feel happy about the fact that we are wearing sweats all the time, avoiding anything without elastic in the waist, or our hair looking sloppy. And yet, when we hear, “you look great” we can get annoyed or defensive of our pain.
We’re being joined by Kimberli Freilinger, who is Mrs. Oregon Plus America and she lives with mitochondrial disease.
After the chat is over you can get the specific link to the questions and answers here.
