BillieMarie advocates because many sufferers with Invisible Illnesses suffer from depression, anxiety due to the chronic pain, the missing out on events, loss of friends because we often have to cancel plans, or can no longer make plans in advance. Also, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, schizophrenia, etc… are mental illnesses, that are also classified as Invisible Illnesses. We want to take away the stigma, let people know that they are not alone, raise awareness, encourage and support them and pray for those who are in need.
We are sufferers of Invisible Illness(es), and we want to offer prayer and support to others who are suffering.
