Are You Living with an Invisible Disability?
Life with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, autism, dyslexia or other "invisible disabilities" can be isolating and, too often, filled with shame and silence.  

Dr. Roizen's guests, Tricia Bliven-Chasinoff and Lisa Davis, talk about their new book, Easy to Love but Hard to Live With, an anthology of 35 stories written by and about adults living with a variety of invisible disabilities.  

These stories lift the veil of shame and silence and invite readers to connect with and celebrate their true selves -- disabilities and all!
