Anxiety: The Invisible Illness

I am sick. You may not know that by looking at me, but I am. My illness is invisible. There are those out there who would say mental illness isn’t real, or isn’t as important as other medical ailments – cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis. And to them, I ask: Why? Why is my illness unimportant? It affects my mind and my body on a regular basis.

Praise from Jenna Kutcher:

We are consistently inundated with articles, reminders, commercials, and ads that poke at us to remind us that we are not enough. So many visuals of what "beauty" looks like aren't even real, they are digitally edited to morph an imperfect person into something they are not. We complain that we want change, that we want to see more body types, races, religions, orientations presented but so few are actually taking a stand and doing that... until this arrived in my mail box. Holl And Lane Magazine is changing that and this month is alllll about body positivity! Imagine a whole magazine dedicated to positive thoughts about you, your body, your beauty. Yeah, paging through and see bodies that looked like mine was refreshing. Trust me friend, you'll want to check it out. I am SO proud of Sarah and her team for taking a stand.
