Video: Body Positivity Coach Michelle Elman speaks out on Invisible Disabilities

Not every disability is visible.

Body Confidence Coach Michelle Elman spoke to Access London about having invisible disabilities.

Four years ago, Michelle started the campaign #scarrednotscared, as a way to encourage people with scars not be ashamed. From there, she went viral with her story and has become a firm figure in the Body Positivity community.

The result of 15 surgeries has left Michelle with invisible physical disabilities, such as energy-based limitations that can leave her bed-ridden. Though it’s not as obvious as say, being in a wheelchair, Michelle wants to raise awareness. As she says – “if your disability is not seen, laziness is often assumed”.
