Welcome to Traveling Pains, a new resource for travelers with chronic pain and illness

by Lanora Mueller on September 13, 2010

Invisible Chronic Illness Week 2010This blog has been on the drawing board for more than a year. I’ve decided to launch it today, even though it’s still in rough form, to mark the beginning of National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week, September 13-19, 2010.

If you’re reading this post, you know someone who suffers from chronic pain or other invisible illness.

According to Lisa Copen, founder of  Rest Ministries and sponsor of the campaign, nearly 1 out of 2 people lives with chronic illness, about 96% of which is invisible.

Each day this week, and regularly thereafter, Traveling Pains will feature resources and inspiration for people whose love of travel is countered by chronic pain and other physical challenges.

Today, Traveling Pains features a roundup of related blogs and websites who are also participating in this week’s campaign to increase awareness of chronic invisible illness.

It’s nice to see a blog that addresses disabilities a little closer to my own. Cool. Thanks.
