Why is there no Invisible Illness Awareness holiday?

I mean really, if St. Patrick’s Day counts as a reason to party and even modify one’s wardrobe, I think Invisible Illness could get some more hype. Sure there’s invisible illness awareness week, and plenty of wear blue/purple/etc. days for specific conditions, but that’s not what I call hype, guys.

So what about this – what if we hijacked a holiday? Not like Christmas or anything….although….

No no. I mean a holiday that people won’t mind us hijacking. Like St. Patricks Day! It’s already been hijacked by America and booze, so it’s used to it.

If you were planning on wearing green anyway, why not put it to good use?

And I know this is a bit last-minute. I’ve been busy freaking out because of doggie drama. But don’t worry – green awareness can be yours in the knick of time for St. Patty’s Day if you use the code STPATSHIPPIN at checkout for 50% off expedited shipping – putting it back down around normal shipping costs.

Let’s make this invisible illness’s lucky day.

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.
