I almost missed this month’s story. I had so much going on I didn’t realize today is the 12th of the month and a new Becoming VISIBLE 4ME story is up.
That would have been a real shame, because this month’s story, by Laura Lipscombe, is really impacting.
Many of the feelings and situations she shares from her own personal struggle with Myaglic Encephalomyelitis (ME) are easily relatable to anyone with this illness.
But more than that, I found that over and over, Laura made statements that would hit home with me. I either found myself shaking my head or they made me think.
Lastly, the photo of her on her wedding day really hit home for me. It made me realize how many times people look at us and think there is nothing wrong with us because we look normal.
In addition, her beautiful photo gave me hope because so many of us living with ME are not married.
While her life has changed and become harder, Laura’s story offers an open, honest conversation of the challenges, obstacles and the victories of anyone living with this insidous illness.
You can read her story here .
