Join the Invisible Fight for Invisible Illness Awareness Week JackF/Fotolia

Many are lying flat on their backs, or propped up in bed, or on a couch, when they type. Many of those can only type for a few minutes, then must collapse on their beds, breathing and resting from the exertion.

Maybe they can only manage to type or to read online for a few minutes a day. I used to be one of those people. You might be amazed how many people live this way.

But now they have their foothold. They have the portal into a larger world, where typed words or words dictated can appear magically on screens in front of an astonishing number of people. And with the help of the Internet, in an increasingly united front, they continue to wage the invisible fight.
