IIWK16: Invisible Illness and Incommunicable Diseases Ted Talk by Emily Reach White

Some of you may have seen me post this video before but it’s been a while and it’s one of my favorite chronic illness videos. Although this video specifically addresses the difficulties of being diagnosed with Lyme Disease, I feel like anyone with a chronic, undiagnosed, or invisible illness(es) can easily relate to the speaker’s father’s experience, including the judgement he faced for being sick up until the day he passed away – at Disney World, nonetheless. It’s amazing how unfair life can be sometimes.

Given that this week is #invisibleillnessawarenessweek and all, I figured this would be the perfect time to share.

Plus, who doesn’t love a good Ted Talk now and again?
