This Instagram Account Spreads Awareness About What People With Chronic Illnesses Go Through Every Day
One of the most important things in life is a person’s health. Recent times have shown how crucial it is to take care of ourselves to prevent our health from deteriorating. But even if people lead a healthy lifestyle and are aware of their habits, there are some diseases that change a person’s life forever and these are chronic diseases.
According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), chronic diseases are “conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both.” Such health problems become a real everyday struggle that can be difficult for others to understand. Having this in mind, a couple who call themselves Chronic Illness Advocates started sharing inspiring messages to educate and encourage people to start a more open discussion about chronic illnesses.
The Instagram page @how.u.feeling, which has 115k followers, shares pictures of Justin Cypres and Sarah Gausepohl, who pose with a board in their hands stating some powerful words meant for those who struggle with their illnesses and sometimes find it hard to keep moving forward. Some of the things they express are also directed at people who are healthy and don’t necessarily understand what it means to deal with chronic pain. Their thoughts teach these people to be more compassionate and understanding.
