It is easy enough to understand a person has a disability when they are missing a limb. What is difficult to see are the invisible disabilities. These take the form of chronic fatigue syndrome, profound hearing loss or deafness and the chronic pain of diseases such as fibromyalgia. None of these ailments are seen just by looking at a person, yet they are very disabling in many cases. People who have them must learn to cope with both their issue and the world. It is not always easy and unseen often equates to less assistance and understanding.
