This Movement Will Inspire You to Speak Up and Get Involved

September 05, 2015 2 min read

Often times, when we think of an illness, we imagine the physicality of it. How it affects someone's skin, hair and overall body gives us an idea that something is going on health wise with someone that we need to be aware and respectful of. But for the many people living with invisible illnesses, it can be difficult to see that they are suffering from something. People may misinterpret their behaviour, or perhaps not believe them when they open up about it. But one woman is bringing about a voice for all of those people by starting an online community called Suffering the Silence, in which people living with chronic illnesses are given the opportunity to share their stories and speak freely with others about how they are feeling and what they are going through. Allie Cashel and fellow friend Erica Lupinacci are the creators behind the online community. Cashel has been struggling with Lyme disease since she was 7-years-old. Lupinacci was diagnosed with lupus at 18-years-old. Both wanted to create an open dialogue on their chronic illnesses. On their site, the women say, "The simple act of listening and sharing illness narratives has been an incredibly powerful and healing force in both of our lives, and we hope to use this space to continue to honestly and openly communicate those stories." It was Cashel who went on to create the movement we now see filling up Instagram with powerful pictures, in which people are speaking out about their own struggles. "It's time to make some noise," Allie writes on her site. movement movement movement movement movement What do you think of this powerful movement?
