In the past week I went back and re-read her posts, about the project, and it got me thinking about the people in the photos. The purpose of the photos was to show people what it can look like when a person is suffering from a chronic illness. Most of the photos were of things that were fairly visible. That led me to think about the people who suffer from "silent" things. The things that aren't easily seen. I have written before about the significance of not making snap judgements about a person if you go by the way they look or the way the act. A person in a motorized grocery cart or a perfectly healthy looking person in a handicapped spot can look bad, but it can also mean that they are suffering "silently". I have been on the wrong end of assumptions about my health before. It's not a fun place to be.
So in my own humble way, in the name of awareness, I bring you this Pop Quiz.
Instructions.... Please list, by their letters, in the comments section which people you think have a chronic illness. In about a week I will post the answers. I cannot wait to see how this plays itself out. I can't wait to see your reactions and promote some awareness at the same time!
