Invisible disability & flying

But You Look Fine to Me: Invisible Disability and Flying, by E.Amato.  The author has an invisible disability.  She is able to walk- for short distances on some days, and the distance between airport terminals is often more than she is capable of- or if she does walk, it drains her reserves that she may need later.  She describes the “scowls, the down-the-nose stares, and the odd jealousy that comes off people like a bad scent” that she experiences when she requests a wheelchair at the airport, while visibly able to use her legs.  Another clear description of both invisible disabilities, and disabilities where the level of difficulty experienced varies regularly.
