It was indeed an honour and a great privilege to share my story of pain to purpose to the world.
Thank you Dr Caroline Makaka and LADIES OF ALL NATIONS INTERNATIONAL (LOANI GLOBAL) for this great opportunity to use my story to inspire and heal the hopeless and speak for the voiceless.
It was also an opportunity to learn and share experiences with other sisters across the Globe, on how they manage or survived different INVISIBLE DISABILITIES AND AILMENTS, and how they transform their pain to purpose and touching lives.
So Amazing to learn different invisible disabilities and diseases that mostly affect women and how it can be managed and overcome.
It goes without saying that ;
Invisible disabilities/ailments are great threats to mental and physical well being and total wreck to the entire body.
Some Mental cankerworms and caterpillars are covered with wigs and weaves, the next person doesn't see it, yet the victim is often misunderstood and abused, while she fakes smiles and pretends that all is well.
Behind some Cosmetic foundation and make up, there is an excruciating pain that is hidden, invisible to the eyes, sadly the victim may lack the capacity to explain and the victim is often abused and stigmatised yet she pretends to be alright in the because the society doesn't understand.
Inside that Gorgeously embellished and we'll tailored office Wear, lies a hurting soul who has an invisible disease she is struggling with and she is wishing someone would understand and show a little empathy.
Invisible disability &ailment that is confronted with lack of empathy and indifference consequently leads to suicide.
People suffering from invisible disease may at times lack the courage to speak up for obvious reasons. #bekind
Family functions as the primary support system for any one suffering from a chronic invisible disease, HEALING STARTS FROM HOME.
The beautiful studio picture you see posted on Facebook maybe the only way the victim finds joy and happiness while struggling with something unknown he cannot explain.
Invisible diseases that is often misunderstood leads to painful domestic violence and Abuses.
That sudden change in behavior you started noticing in your mum, aunt wife and sister may menopausal flares. #understandandsupport
HOW DO YOU SUPPORT SOMEONE
STRUGGLING WITH AN UNKNOWN DISABILITY AS A SPOUSE, FAMILY MEMBER, COLLEAGUE, EMPLOYER, CHURCH MEMBER?
DO YOU EMPATHISE OR ABUSE, MALIGN AND STIGMATISE, OR GOSSIP?
THE MESSAGE OUT THERE IS JUST #BEKIND #LOVEUMCONDITIOMALLY AND #BETHECATALYSTOFHOPE DO NOT JUDGE ANYBODY, FOR YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE STRUGGLING WITH.
YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY DO. #PLEASEBEKIND
IT WAS AMAZING HOW SOME FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THE SPEAKERS WERE SCREENING DURING THE WEBINAR SAYING "YOU MEAN YOU WENT THROUGH ALL THAT?"
EVEN MY OWN BROTHER.
#JUSTBEKIND SUPPORT WHEN YOU HAVE TO.
Just a little word of encouragement, brings back a lost soul, just say it "be strong you are not in this alone " "I care"
