Lupus: What It Means to Live With an Invisible Disease

Do not feel guilty

In most cases, people living with invisible diseases depend on their family and friends for support. Without help, they may not be able to perform their day-to-day activities such as cooking, cleaning, and other related activities. Some are lucky to have friends and family members who provide them with all the required help.

Living with invisible illness means depending on family members and friends for support. As a result, guilt can set in, especially when one has to depend on other people all the time. The fact is that no one, including people living with an invisible illness, wants to be an emotional, physical, and financial burden.
