I recently came across this amazing creative project, hailing from our friends down under at the MS Society, Australia: Seeing MS. It features the work of nine photographers who worked with MSers to portray the invisibility of nine MS symptoms: fatigue, blurred vision, numbness, brain fog, spasticity, hot and cold, pain, dizziness and loss of balance.
We often talk about the invisibility of Multiple Sclerosis and this MSer: Photographer collaboration successfully and powerfully illustrates MS symptoms through photography. It is so difficult to describe what we live with and understanding our symptoms can be difficult for others, or non-MSers. These photographers have done a dynamite job depicting what the invisibility of MS feels like, a truly incredible accomplishment.
Take a moment to watch the video below, read through their site and download the app (cool filters!) to create your own image of what your MS symptoms are like.
