Hello everyone and welcome back to Hidden in Plain Sight. For those of you just joining me, my intent is for this to be a monthly column about the trials and tribulations of living life with invisible illnesses that (most) people don’t know about. To recap: Over the last twenty-eight years, I have had numerous major surgeries, and a handful of minor ones, in addition to dozens of other (often invasive) medical procedures. I’ve had organs removed and a metal plate and cage implanted in my neck. I have been formally diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis, Fibromyalgia, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Peripheral Neuropathy, Raynaud’s Syndrome, and Stage Four Endometriosis. I am not entirely closeted, as some people do know about my medical conditions, but for the most part I live my life in a state of semi-secret. I hope that what I write here will resonate with some of you who might be in a similar position, and let you know that you are not alone.
Invisible Not Broken is a chronic illness podcast and blog that explores the lives of those with chronic illness, invisible illness, and disability with snark and a good laugh.
