The Invisible Disabilities Advocate
Our website, The Invisible Disabilities Advocate, was designed to help loved ones understand chronic, debilitating illness and injury. Often when a person is debilitated by a chronic illness or injury, friends and family members have a difficult understanding how the person can "LOOK" fine on the outside, but be in so much pain on the inside. 
Sadly, many of those who suffer with illness/injury often are treated as if they are just being lazy or are malingering. The truth is, they want to get back to work and their active lives more than anyone else! 
Our site provides articles, booklets, links, a support board and a ministry outreach!
