Book: Eleanor

Title: Living with an invisible illness

Summary: How can someone who looks so well really be so sick? Many illnesses are not immediately obvious but their impacts are all too real.

I have chronic pain, an invisible illness usually associated with older people. I have had my pain for nearly as long as I can remember and it took me years to get a diagnosis. I look fine and so people struggle to understand that I am often very unwell.
