How can we acknowledge hidden disabilities?

 

At some point this week I found myself listening to a speaker about disabilities, hidden or otherwise, and I found myself realizing a major challenge to acknowledging hidden disabilities is the fact we live in a culture of denial.  It is very hard for us to openly converse about the fact that in our not too distant past some of the people in the room were owned as property by some of the other people in the room.  How can we openly talk about the fact that at this minute some of us our suffering in ways we cannot understand and they cannot explain if we cannot even deal with realities of our past that are common knowledge?

Just

saying.
