It is Thursday of Invisible Illness Awareness Week!

Today we have Leslie Vernick who will discuss destructive relationships. What do you do when a friend or family member goes beyond not understanding your illness. Trish Robichaud talk about steps she took following open heart surgery (she also has MS) to get through recovery and what she recommends when you are facing this slow process.

Maureen Pratt will talk about steps to take when you are facing a crisis? What happens when a crisis happens in addition to coping with your illness. And at 5 PM Jenni Pettit discusses how to be an advocate for your illness. What can you do when you are exhausted all the time?
