Reviews for Invisible Disabilities Association
I have had fibromayalgia for many years now l never relised it could be seen inviisable disability now l relise why so many people don't relise how ill it can really make a person feel and how much alone you can you can look good but feel you are breaking up iside firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm new to the organization, but am excited to help spread the awareness to others living with an invisible disability. I quickly joined the Inspire group and have had some great conversations with others there who understand. This is a wonderful organization with so many great resources and I can't wait to be more involved as an Ambassador!
I'm honored and excited to be a part of this organization, and helping IDA to expand its mission of necouraging, educating and connecting those touched by invisible illness or disability.
I found IDA via disability.gov (Wayne Connell's post) in October 2014, researched them thoroughly, explored their history and advocacy, along with their stories. IDA is THE gem in the disability area. They consistently provide high quality advocacy and support to ALL with invisible disabilities. The organization entered my life and has changed it forever!!
I love the fact that there is a global website whereas members can be in a safe and secure environment to learn, support and share experiences dealing with a variety of health issues.
I wish that more members would feel more comfortable giving general info about themselves so others can share and support more. Do not want anyone to feel pressured; however, if and when anyone feels that comfortable, Inspire's IDA is the ideal website to come to.
Inspire, thank you for this much needed website so everyone can have a voice. God placed me here on earth to be a blessing to someone else. I, then, will receive tenfold.
Again, thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Invisible disabilities are real disabilities too. This organization does a lot to help people who suffer from illnesses that are not immediately apparent. They need help and support to continue to serve others.

This is an excellent nonprofit that does amazing awareness, support, and much more for invisible awareness. I would write more but due to my invisible illness it is hard to write. Much gratitude for all their efforts!

The IDA has made such a positive impact on my life...I really cannot thank Sherri & Wayne enough! I have had serious health/pain issues for virtually my entire life, and being a part of this wonderfully caring and compassionate group is a blessing! For myself, and many, many others, whose disabilities are not "visible" this is the first time I have been part of a community that understands the unique difficulties we live with.

I have lived literally my entire life with invisible disabilities. This site is wonderful! There is a great group of caring and compassionate people there. I always know, that no matter what may be going on with me, there are people there who provide me with the encouragement and support I need. I am also happy to share my experiences, knowledge and words of kindness to others. The chats are GREAT...wonderful to "connect" with others who know what it is like to live like this :)
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

I have chronic pain and for 3 years now, without IDA, I would not have felt supported, loved and cared about. I have found friends through the network and they have helped me maintain a positive attitude. There is always someone who knows something about what you are going through. Without it, I would not survive in some of my darkest moments.
