Four Common Misconceptions About Invisible Illness

Science 37

Myth #1: An Invisible Illness Is Always Invisible. You would be surprised at how often this kind of idea is voiced by friends, family, and clinicians. Working a clinical job, there were often days I would ever so slightly limp down the clinic halls.
