My name is Erin J. Hopkins and I have invisible illness. I knew at a young age that something was “off” and it was more than the growing pains that the doctors seemed to think it was. As I got older, my condition got increasingly worse. I fell into a deep depression and found it hard to express myself in any form (except for writing). I still love to write and find it helps me connect with others in pain, like myself. Invisible illness can be a lonely place, so I’ve founded “A Spot For Me” to be a place for people (with invisible illness and their loved ones) to connect and find information pertaining to their conditions. A Spot For Me is a place for those of us with chronic pain to really say, I have a place and a voice. I have a spot that just for me. Also see my website, http://www.aspotforme.org for more information. Thank you!
