Hi, welcome to the invisible Stories project where we aim to see and be seen. My name is Liz Allen and

One of my favorite quotes is: “Be kind, for everyone you know is fighting a battle.” This collection of stories is about exactly that: our invisible battles.
The project aims to collect 30 stories as a fundraiser for research for the Global Lyme Alliance. The first story in this series is about my personal 15 yr battle with Lyme disease (and you’ll hear plenty more from me). But it will also include stories from other folks on a wide range of topics from addiction, mental illness, and grief.

I hope you join me on this journey and until next time - Stay kind, my friends!
