Campaign: To raise awareness about invisible illnesses

I want to raise awareness about living with an invisible illness after being diagnosed with Lupus when I was 15 years old. 

 

There's many illnesses that people can't see including mental health issues, diabetes and epilepsy, but sometimes other people don't realise someone is living with a serious condition. 

 

I struggled with support from my teachers when I was at school. I was in and out of hospital and they thought I was skipping school and becoming a lazy student - this was not the case at all. 

 

I have made a film to help raise the profile of invisible illnesses - please help me share it! 

Thank you to the following Fixers for helping me with my Fix!
