One of the greatest things about our community (70 members strong at the minute!) is the vast amount of conditions we encompass. 'Visible difference' is very broad, and so we are able to welcome a big range of medical diagnoses - some of which will be more widely known about and understood than others.
I thought we could use this particular blog to raise awareness and understanding about some of the the conditions/injuries we live with. If you would like to, reply to this post by naming your condition and briefly explaining what it is.
So for example, someone could write a reply to this explaining what Alopecia (hair loss or absence) is. You could stop there if you want to, or expand if you have more to say...
Hopefully we can use this space to learn more about different conditions and illnesses.
