Grand Rounds is at Invisible Illness Week
Grand Rounds Vol 5.47 is over at Invisible Illness Week. What's an invisible illness? It's when you have a medical condition that isn't "visible" to most people. If you can hide your illness from others, then it may be an "invisible" illness because most people can't see that you're visibly "ill." That sounds like most chronic conditions, doesn't it? Depression, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, etc. The bottom line is that many people suffer silently as they hide in their illness. However, there are various support groups out there for people who go through their "silent" and "invisible" illness, so they should not be alone.
To read this week's grand rounds, head over to Invisible Illness Week.
National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is an official annual campaign sponsored by Rest Ministries in collaboration with other sponsors.
