Loss of identity or getting to grips with a new identity can be an enormous struggle for those whose lives have been changed due to chronic and invisible illnesses. Hope Caitlin, chronic illness blogger and photographer (, explores these elements. For more of Hope's inspirational and powerful imagery, visit her blog and her Facebook page.

Identity is something we all attempt to form when we start to grow up. When you become ill, things get even more messy and complicated. There’s no rule book on how to live like this, no steps you can follow to ensure you’re “doing it right” all you have is your journey and the way you choose to live it. So this is a part of my journey, messy, complicated, full of mistakes but ultimately a completely honest piece of who I really am.
