Living with an invisible illness
Awareness is number one
Living with an invisible illness means dealing with symptoms every day – but no one can see them. Hayley spoke to The Metro about living with two invisible illnesses: arthritis and PSC.
'I don’t look sick, therefore I feel like people are less likely to believe me if I tell them I need help.'
Hayley wants to see people be more aware of people living with invisible illnesses and to be more compassionate when they need help.
'Awareness is number one. Then people in public will be less likely to give a tut or make side remarks when someone uses the priority seat or a disabled parking space.’
