How would you react if a friend, family member or coworker told you they had a hidden disability?

Asked by wundayatta (58612points) May 11th, 2009

A lot of folks with disabilities are reluctant to tell others about the disability. They are afraid they might get told the disability is imagined, or that people will judge them as less than other people because of it.

Would you want to know? Do you think they should tell you? Should they keep it hidden? Does it make a difference if it’s a family member, a friend, or a coworker? What’s the difference? Who do you think they should tell or not tell? Why?
