One of the first questions that a person asks when we meet someone with a chronic condition is, “What do the doctors say?” You see, when we come across someone who is sick or in pain, we assume the medical community must have a handle on their condition.
Unfortunately, this often leads to thinking that they are still suffering, because they must not be doing what their doctor is telling them to do. After all, modern medicine has come a long way! What’s more, the doctors must have something that can take away the symptoms. Otherwise, the only other explanation is that this person must not be trying very hard to get well!
The Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) encourages, educates and connects people and organizations touched by illness, pain and disability around the globe. Formerly known as The Invisible Disabilities Advocate, IDA was founded in 1997 and incorporated in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
