Interview about invisible illness

Hi, I'm a second year student studying journalism. As part of my studies, I would like to write a feature article about someone living with an invisible illness. I based in Manchester and Sheffield so would be able to travel within reason to surrounding areas. However, if this is not suitable, a telephone interview would be acceptable for me to gather information and write the article. 

Thanks, Abbie

    well never classed mine tbh as an invisible illness, but as i've just failed a WCA for the DWP on ESA, i'm more than happy to help out, i'm a 52 next month year old male, who's been classed as disabled for the last 20 years, until april of this year on which some nurse over ruled all the doctors, consultants and senior consultants and professors medical expertise and reports, MRI and XRays and over ruled the evidence without even looking / reading it, and said i'm fit to work, so have the time, that is for sure while i appeal, only have 

    spondyloarthropathy, spondylarthritis, 

    chronic back pain, Sciatica, Panic attacks, anxiety, stress, frozen shoulder and trapped nerves and IBS, with a few other minor issues, but none most of the time from just looking at me tbh, and just one of the reasons i failed my last assessment, with the other being the nurse didn't have a clue, live in the out skirts of Nottingham almost on the derbyshire boarder if that's a help
