I went for a job interview to work with a person who suffers from mental disorders. In front of the door, I saw a gentleman with neat clothes. He introduced himself. I greeted him too. I thought he must be one of the interviewers. He spoke to me very warmly and at the end of our conversation he said, “They’re waiting for you, good luck. “
I waited inside and the interviewer came and asked me: “What do you think about the patient? I was surprised and asked him, I didn’t meet any patients! He said,”I was looking through the window and saw you talking to him just wondering what you think?”
An invisible illness is an umbrella term for any medical condition that isn’t easily visible to others. Living with an invisible illness often leads to judgment and criticism because others believe you look fine on the outside and therefore must be “making up” for your suffering.
We worked together for 3 years and it was one of my best experiences about people who suffer from mental disorders.
