For many of us, that support and willingness to share information makes a significant difference. And that's very important, and very special, particularly for those of us with illnesses that just don't have treatments that will cure us.

But now we have each other. No longer are we entirely cut off and alone in a bedroom. Thank goodness for the Internet.

The theme for Invisible Illness Awareness Week, 2016, is "This is Chronic Illness."

Are you chronically ill? Mark this Awareness week by telling some of your story. Write it or make a video.

Share anything that catches your eye from the Invisible Illness Awareness Week Facebook page in as many places as you like. You can also post at #ThisIsChronicIllness or #InvisibleIllness.

Display any items on your Facebook page, Illness group websites, blogs and forums, and any other social media you can think of.

If you tell your story somewhere, send a link to Invisible Illness Awareness Week's Facebook page.
