Some people have disabilities which are largely invisible, and they’re often met with a reaction like “You don’t look sick.” But harboring an “invisible disability” can be especially difficult in the workplace environment, because you may need to ask for special accommodations to perform your duties, and you may be unsure about how to approach your employer with these needs. This article by the Social Security Administration offers help with some common sense guidance on how to approach this issue with your boss. This is part of Social Security’s ongoing “Ticket to Work” program which provides assistance to disabled people with work-related problems.
