30 Messages On This Instagram Account That Shows How It Feels To Live With Chronic Illness

Published 2 years ago

Imagine if your legs get fractured and everyone starts telling you that you are not trying hard enough to walk, or that you are lazy, how would you feel? That’s exactly what people with chronic illnesses go through every day. A fractured leg can be seen externally, so people recognize it as a poor health condition but some illnesses might not be noticeable from the outside and still be very painful. Diseases such as cancer, chronic depression, diabetes, heart diseases, etc are some long-term illnesses that last for one year or more and deeply affect a person’s physical as well as mental health.

People with these illnesses do not only require medical attention but also lots of emotional support. An Instagram page called “how.u.feeling” is dedicated to spreading awareness about chronic illnesses and urges everyone to be more kind and understanding towards people with chronic illnesses. Here are 30 powerful messages shared by them.
