For and About the Dwellers: Those Living with Physical Challenges

These pages illustrate lives of those whose live in unending storms. Many of these are people living with invisible disabilities and other chronic conditions. For some broad characteristics of dwellers, see the posts about what invisible disabilities are and how to recognize them.  Due to each person being a unique individual with differing limitations and to the variety of diseases, it is impossible to completely categorize dwellers.

Maybe you live in continual storms, or—like me—your storms come and go with days of sunshine in-between. Either way, storms of physical difficulties keep you from a life of independence.

If you're a dweller, we hope you will find encouragement to keep on keeping on. Living with invisible disabilities can be quite challenging. We hope these ideas and tips about what you can do, how you can cope, and ways to accept what now is in your life will enrich your life. If you’re an observer, we trust you’ll enjoy getting to know more about dwellers and their lives.

We will add to these pages as you send in ideas via contact and as I come across more ideas.

    I have a few different conditions that are very difficult for people to understand. Even my spouse gets forgetful and causes hurts by his misunderstanding of my conditions.
