Hi, my name is darling!

Okay, my name isn't actually darling. I just like to go by different names online. I have chronic migraines and a joint problem leading me to be housebound that my doctors are still scratching their heads over.
Unfortunately, most of this is invisible unless I'm using a cane, so it's nice to find an online community! I'm 19, by the way. I'm excited to meet all of you.

    Hello darling and welcome

    There are many members that have "invisible" conditions, it can be really hard to explain these to other people.
    Have a look around the site aand read some of the posts, you are not alone

    Hey @darling, nice to meet you! I'm 22 and have invisible conditions (including bouts of chronic migraines) too.

    I've moved your post to the Invisible Impairments category and you might also like to take a look at past discussions in that group. Hope today is as kind as possible to you!
