As those who like our facebook page or follow our instagram, will know, is that we asked for people to get in touch and share their stories with us. This is because September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month, and in 2 weeks, starts Invisible Illness Awareness Week!
Here’s one of our stories sent in by a Rachel, written by her on her experience with IC!
Hello lovelies, my name is Rachel. I am a 22 year old social worker. I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome 10 years ago, and I was also diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis earlier this year. Needless to say my lower abdomen is a bit of a battlefield for me. I never quite know the day I have ahead of me with my unruly organs.
Want to be featured just like Rachel? Then please get in touch! More information can be found on our facebook page, but heres a little summary!
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your story! (preferably a word count of 2000/3000. Minimum 1500 words)
- Please include your social media (including blog, snapchat etc, whichever you wish people to find) as we can link back to you and help others find you!
- Try to refain from triggers in your post. It is fine to mention the hard times you have been through, but try to not include too much detail as it may become a trigger for someone.
We will try to email you back as soon as possible, and we will also send you the direct link to your post!
