The Invisible Illness
When someone sustains a broken bone or has a cancerous tumor, an MRI or CAT scan gives us clear and unequivocal documentation that a physical injury or illness exists.
Unfortunately for those suffering from depression or PTSD, there is no X-ray for the human psyche. If there were, the numbers of cracks and fractures uncovered would be astonishing.
The Law Offices of Peter M. Hsiao knows that work-related psychiatric injuries are not only difficult to prove for the very reason that there is little tangible way of definitely proving a disease exists, but that this lack of physical “proof” leads many people to continue to insist that “you should just get over it.”
