Several nights ago I shared a link to an article on social media, You Are Not Crazy. You have an Invisible Disability.
Today, I created a video presentation of the article to share the information with visual and auditory learners.
To watch and listen to the video click: You Are Not Crazy. You have an Invisible Disability Video Presentation

Below is a brief excerpt:
“In the event that you are living with an invisible disability, I am writing this to you. To encourage you, as I need to encourage myself; to not give up. Although there may be people who want or need to deny our realities, we can still excel. We can excel in our realities. Our invisible disabilities do not have to continue to make us crazy. We can own and accept our realities and we can move forward with our lives. We can be aware. We can create a good life for ourselves. We can pursue our dreams and our destinies. We can create hope.
We can pursue our dreams and our destinies. We can create hope.
In my past three articles, Denial and Brain Injury Recovery, Brain Injury and Anger and Brain Injury, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance I shared my experience grieving my reality. A reality that remained hidden to me for many years. A reality that I needed to be able to accept, but discovered I could not do without confronting my denial, processing my anger, trying to change what I did not like and working through my depression and despondency.
In these 3 articles, I shared what helped me to realize that I was not crazy. That I was living with an invisible disability. That although I could not change my reality, I no longer had to feel limited because of my invisible disability. That I no longer had to feel stuck, because of my invisible disability. That I could succeed.
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed-door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” Helen Keller”
