People Hope is an amazing organization, founded by Anna King, that I have had the absolute pleasure of volunteering for. This organization, not only provides hope and light to those who suffer with chronic illnesses and their families, but it also brings us all together as a community with God’s love as we share our stories and moments.
“People Hope is a new nonprofit organization dedicated to being a place of authentic hope for those battling chronic illness, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed. Our website will provide resources of hope and inspiration, creating a community of support that reflects the loving compassion of God, and encouraging people to define their darkest day as their finest hour.”
I first discovered People Hope after I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation. I was having an extremely difficult time emotionally, physically, and mentally. I was so utterly defeated by my situation and slowly letting depression and anxiety overwhelm me. I didn’t have much clue about what was going on and I was so fatigued and in pain all day, everyday. If you don’t have a chronic illness, it’s pretty much equivalent to your worst flu day, except everyday, and you never know when you will have a flare up. You can’t make plans that are reliable because that could be your flare day. You try your best, but pain and desperation creep up each time. That’s my experience with how I felt in the beginning. Although, I have found some relief, I continue to have days where I am hopeless: pain, fatigue, and feelings of despair. People Hope has helped me through some of my worst days. I’ve been able to help others in their time of need and in turn, helped myself.
