Welcome to our discussion group for invisible impairments
As a blogger, I started a campaign called More Than Meets The Eye to raise awareness of invisible impairments, I spoke to thousands of people who have faced judgement because of their own invisible disability. People with cancer, prosthetic limbs, autism, Tourette’s, brain disorders, bladder issues, partners with dementia, IBD, so many illnesses and conditions, some of which I had never heard of!
But they were all saying the same thing. That there is more to them than meets the eye. Their disabilities may not be visible at a glance but they are so real and it makes their lives difficult at times.This discussion group is a place to share your experiences of invisible impairments, to get and to give support to others in a similar situation.
If you'd like to share your experiences or seek support, simply click the 'new discussion' button at the top-right of the screen or read through other people's experiences and offer any support you can.
