Win $500 and a Trip to Denver Just Because We Believe You

2018 February 13

People don’t believe people with invisible disabilities. That’s why people with invisible disabilities get nasty notes on their cars when they park in disabled spots, even when their placards are clearly visible. That’s why their disability benefits are denied even when their doctors say they can’t work. That’s why their friends get mad when they have to cancel plans because their bodies won’t allow them to take a shower, much less leave the house. That’s why people with invisible disabilities often feel invisible themselves.

We Believe You

Do you have a condition that is not readily visible but impacts your ability to perform basic functions like sitting, standing, walking and concentrating? Invisible disabilities include mental illness, lupus, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, traumatic brain injury, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic and severe back pain, Chron’s disease, arthritis, heart disease, rare diseases and other disorders. Do you have an invisible disability?

Allsup and the Invisible Disabilities Association believe you. That’s one reason you should enter the #IAmInvisibleNoMore video contest. Here are four more reasons.

  1. You could win $500 and a trip to Denver.  The video that gets the most online votes earns the winner and a guest a trip to Denver to attend the IDA Awards Gala in October 2018. The trip includes round trip air, ground transportation, hotel, Gala tickets and VIP treatment. An additional $400 in gift cards and other prizes will be awarded to the top 24 vote-getting videos.
  2. Your story matters. Sharing your experiences living with an invisible disability allows you to connect with others who share similar experiences. IDA facilitates caring communities and networks, but it’s individuals like you who make them work.
  3. You are not alone. Living with an invisible disability often makes it hard to be social. Sharing your story through #IAmInvisibleNorMore can be a big step toward connecting with others and building a supportive social network.
  4. You are an important part of the solution. Sharing your video story encourages others and breaks down barriers of misunderstanding and prejudice. Does someone who looks like you have an invisible disability? Yes, you are living proof. Tell people what you want them to know about “people like you.”

Since 1984, Allsup has helped more than 275,000 people obtain the disability benefits they deserve. Most of them had invisible disabilities―and we believed them. For more information on how Allsup can help you apply for disability benefits, visit

    Never heard of IDA before.
    It is true, some people make fun of people who park in handicap parking spot and then get out of the cars and walk to a store and do shopping. They do not realize that the the person is walking in pain from osteoarthritis or has painful back pain.
    They expect that the only people who park in a handicap parking spot should exit the van with a wheelchair.

    I have been taunted for parking in handicapped spots. I have fibromyalgia and diabetic nerve damage in both feet and both legs. I am also overweight. Some jerk made the comment, “since when is being fat and ugly considered being handicapped”. I struggle with shopping at stores with no handicapped carts, get dirty looks from people who don’t care to understand. Things I’m sure all of us with invisible disabilities have suffered.

    Hi Nancy. So sorry to hear about the unkind words and actions you experienced. The more people stand up and say that kind of treatment is not okay, the better. Thank you for having the courage to share your story to help others.

    I am very glad that there are such associations as Allsup and Invisible Disabilities, which hold various quizzes competitions, and most importantly help people who need it. My friend is taking a video course # IAmInvisibleNoMore, and I hope that he will win a trip to Denver to participate in the IDA Awards in October 2018 and, of course, $ 500. In fact, very many express many prejudices towards people with problems. And it’s very bad! 🙁 Allsup and Invisible Disabilities, helps to understand these people, offers help.) I hope that in our time there will be more such organizations, because very many people need help and the opportunity to express themselves, to tell about themselves and their problems, not is not it?:)

    Hi Nancy,
    So Sorry to hear about the rude and idiotic comments that have been said to you! I am in the same situation so you are not alone!! I have 2 kids and I get out of my car in the handicap spots and feel judged instantly, but I have learned to hold my head high and repeat to myself all the time “Never judge what you don’t understand”!!!!
    I battle Lupus, RA and Fibro and I still have family members that don’t understand me! My mother-in-law lives in my basement for free and we got into it a few weeks back and I learned just how misunderstood my diseases are for ignorant people like her! So I repeated to her very loudly “Never judge what you don’t understand” and that kind of make her stop for a moment. But what I took away from that was how judged I am by everyone and its a horrible battle that we all fight on a daily basis!
    I am so thankful to know that there are so many others out there fighting this same fight and that I am not alone!
    Everyone out there with invisible diseases… keep your head high and forget the hater’s that don’t have ANY idea what you’re fighting!!!
    Thank you IDA!!!
