Many disabilities cannot be seen with the naked eye. Although a person does not look disabled on the outside, this does not mean that they are not suffering from a disability on the inside.

The inability to work can be very hard on a person, making it impossible to meet their basic financial needs.

In fact, a person who may seem fine on the outside may be completely torn up emotionally because of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, or on account of some other condition that stems from a traumatic event.
