I think mental illnesses could be classified as "invisible illnesses" as well. Although I do well at work, I still suffer from anxiety and depression, even if it's at a minor level. And I think people may misjudge me for that. I think it's important for everyone to think about the person next to them at work or in the grocery store, and realize that they could very well have a condition they're struggling with, even if its not obvious. Cut others some slack and hopefully they will do the same :)
