PH Columnist, Ellie Bird, recently published this wonderful column, “Using Public Transport With An Invisible Illness”. This type of situation is a perfect example of when and how mental and physical health combine.
What kind of reaction do you get when you ask people for a seat? How much information do you give people if they question your need? What kind of struggles have you experienced while living with an invisible illness?
I encourage you to read the column and then share your thoughts and experiences when using public transportation.
