Hi Friends! We have exciting news! IDA will be broadcasting the 2018 “Be the Voice” Awards Gala tonight, LIVE! Right here on Facebook, October 19th at 6:45 PT / 9:45 ET.
We understand that for most people living with invisible disabilities, travelling to this event is not possible. So, IDA is bringing the evening to you!
Since 2008, the IDA Team has provided videos of the Award Galas on YouTube so that people around the globe could watch and share in the evening’s awareness, awards, special guest speakers and entertainment! IDA has also provided partner tickets (as available) to many people living with invisible disabilities, who otherwise would not be able to attend!
However, for the first time this year, IDA is extremely excited to bring the evening LIVE to you, for all to enjoy!
Come as our guests! Compliments of IDA! Read more in the IDA post! See you there!

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God isfaithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Cor 10:13
God does not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. It is not talking about bearing life, trials and struggles. We are to trust and lean on Him. Not bear them by our own strength.
In fact, it when we are not trying to bear it in our strength that He can give us His strength.
“And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong. Cor 12:9-10

As you probably already know, I live with horrible pain, flu-like symptoms and cognitive disorders 24×7, due to Multiple Sclerosis and Lyme Disease.
I may flash a split second smile for a photo or turn on the video camera for a few minutes once in a great while. But very few people have ever seen behind the scenes of what I live with daily. They don’t see me before or after a video, phone call, visit, etc.
People may see me on a video and think, “Wow! She doesn’t LOOK sick!” But they have no idea how trying to think, talk and articulate for just a few minutes sends me into instant, unfathomable agony! I have so many ideas for videos, but they are lethal!
It just makes me so angry that I can’t do the littlest things without feeling like I am being beat by baseball bats and dragged by a truck!
Serious subject, but I tried to toss in a little humor!
