Jo Ann Naus:
Hello, I am JoAnn Nauss from Nova Scotia, Canada. My husband Kevin and I have 2 fur babies and own a Christmas Tree farm.
I work in Long Term Care and due to my Crohn’s and Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, I have an Nursing Support office job now instead of working on the floor with my residents.
I was diagnosed 9 yrs ago after many years of suffering and am on Remicade treatments regularly.
Taking part in this calendar has been an honour and am looking forward to being a part of bringing awareness to Invisible Illness.

Charley Elizabeth James:
My name is Charley and I am 33.
I have Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety and suffer from Depression. I also have Asthma, Hyper Mobile Joints , Dysmenorrhoea and Diabetes.
I am high functioning so when I am in pain, mentally or physically, I don't give up until I really can't go in anymore. This sometimes leads people to think that I am putting it on or that things can't be that bad for me.
Some days I can't walk, some days I'm dancing like I've never known a day of pain in my life. I wouldn't be me if I didn't have my illnesses, but I choose not to let my illnesses define me.
Harriet Clayton: TBC
