My brother was diagnosed with cancer. It has been detrimental watching him go through the chemo and radiaton treatments. He is my pillar of strength, he always has a smile on his face even though I know he is in pain. "Invisible diseases can deplete you as well as family members mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. You must stay strong, because what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger!

I will pray for you and your family and especially your brother who is fighting cancer. I love your attitude. Stay strong but there is a time for tears too. Don't deny your emotions around safe people.

All Auto-Immune Disorders also fall in this category such as Lupus, RA, Crohns, even Asthma are very disabling. Big Cameron and I struggle sometimes to overcome the effects of Cameron's Sensory Integration/Aspergers and our multiple health issues and many people don't understand what it takes to get us up and out the door with a smile on our faces to spite what we are really going through! I totally understand that you can't judge any book by the cover, sometimes you have to talk to people...

I totally understand that you can't judge any book by the cover, sometimes you have to talk to people to gain knowledge and understanding so we can be more tolerant of each other. You never really know what a family if going through so if you are wondering what is up with me and my late mornings or why I am in a poor mood when you see me, just ask me! I am always glad to educate others on my world of unseen disabilities.

I joined a website entitled "PatientsLikeMe.com and it has lifted my spirits by other sick people who understand and we support each other. Please check it out and pass the website on to others.

Hi I would like to say I hear all the time you don't look sick , well I am I have Lupus and there is pain all the time. There are times I cant walk but who knows about that I am in my house.I was turned down 3 times for disability I even have a doctors paper saying 100% disabled how does that work.I had to leave my job last aug no income very little to take care of my 2 girls now I have to get my rent together by the 4th of oct or I will lose my house.I have went to all the churches and so called places that say they can help but they don't care. I sent my papers to the disability office because they asked me too so we could work on getting in front of a judge so I can get the money I should be gettting , they told me they will do what they can but they only really help people that are close to death who tells you that. So I though wow if they could see this they would no the truth that I am close to death I have no lupus doc because I don't have the right medical to pay for it because they cant see it.I want the world to know we are out here and we need the help that can keep us up above waters.God bless all of you that are going thought some kind of invisible disabilities don't let know one tell you that you are wrong for fighting for what is right god bless.I love you aunt tanya.

I'm one of the people that have invisible disabilities, I have RSD and it doesn't show on the outside, but I sure feel it on the inside. It is nerve damage that starts in one part of your body and spreads through out other parts of your body, so I know.

Because I have many Invisible Disabilities, all caused from a fall I took 10 years ago, changed my life forever!
