Take A Tour

When I was a young child, I visited a supposedly haunted house. Partway through the tour of this house, the tour guide invited eight-year-old me to enter a dark room all by myself. Once I was in the room, she asked me if I wanted the rest of the tour group to join me.


I don't recall being scared of being in the room alone, but I do remember being confused by this sudden change in things. Naturally, I said yes, I would have the rest of the group join me. I wonder what would have happened if I had said no since it was the next part of the tour. It was the most important room of the tour, so if I had said no, what would the guide have done? As it was, she decided I was terrified of being in the room alone.


There is no tour guide to take you around the sometimes confusing life of one lived with an invisible condition. However, in a way, each of us who has one of these conditions has become a bit of an expert and tour guide to others.


As a tour guide for your condition, what type of tour will you offer to others? What are the key highlights to show? Are there scary, dark areas that need to have a light shone upon them? What type of tour guide would you be? How do you take someone on a tour of something they cannot see?
