Learn to See Invisible Illness


Take a Closer Look to See the “Invisible”

Nearly 50 percent of people are living with a chronic condition (which may not be obvious to others).  So, chances are either you or a loved one is struggling with an “invisible” illness yearning to be seen and understood.

While the impacts of chronic illness are not always easy to see, debilitating impairments are not actually “invisible” if you look closely enough.  We must learn to see the “invisible” if we are to better understand what it is really like to live with chronic illness. 

Invisible Illness Awareness Week is a great opportunity to help raise awareness and show your support for people living with chronic “invisible” illness (like vestibular and balance disorders).
