To add on to my popular post 6 Things (chronically ill) Teens should do this Summer, I wanted to add on to my suggestion of checking out free events in your area.
Look at your local library summer schedule and you may be pleasantly surprised to see they have some great events planned for teens (bonus – they are INSIDE! Avoid the heat!)
For example, we are in the Houston, Texas area and our local library is hosting the following fun class every Monday afternoon.
Let’s try to gather our fellow hidden teens and join in at these free events. Let us know if you plan on attending one in your community and hopefully help you link up to others in your area.
And, as always, when participating at various events, use your best judgement that works for YOU. Is everyone standing to play a game? Modify it and make sure you sit down. Whatever is your concerns or issues with your illness can be integrated in whatever you would like to participate in.
Teens Travel Underhill…
This Monday at 3:30 the teens are traveling through the world of Fairy Tales. Go on a Scavenger Hunt to Grandmother’s house. Participate in sword fighting and an archery contest. Play a life sized chess match. As always snacks will be provided and teens 12-18 are welcome.
We help teens and their families who have Dysautonomia and other life changing hidden illnesses.
