Living with an invisible disabilityInvisible disabilities are characterized by symptoms that may not be noticeable to those unaffected, but what exactly constitutes an invisible disability? A person with an ID often suffers from debilitating symptoms including excruciating internal pain, fatigue, dizziness, weakness, cognitive dysfunctions, learning differences, mental disorders, and hearing and vision impairments. Those who are unaffected by this class of disability should not discount the suffering people with ID endure, as they are often fighting to mask the pain and other unwanted symptoms.

Examples of Invisible Disabilities:

Back and Spine Problems
Bipolar Disorder
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Cerebral Atrophy
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Lyme Disease

Living with and managing an invisible disability is a constant battle and unfortunately presents unique challenges for someone attempting to obtain disability benefits. Because of the great variety in symptoms and the difficulty in obtaining a diagnosis, many people suffering from an invisible disability are unable to work. Many disability claimants attempting to obtain long term disability benefits on their own are often met with application denials, filing appeals,unreasonably long delays, and other unethical insurance bad faith practices. Hiring an LTD attorney with extensive experience dealing with insurance companies can give you an advantage over their tactics.
