Invisible by Michele Lent Hirsh

In this work of nonfiction, Michele Lent Hirsh looks at numerous real cases of very ill women whose other job is hiding how ill they are at work and outside of work. The anecdotes of Invisible are sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, and sometimes just so spot on regarding the struggles that women go through to not burden those near them with their health problems even when those health problems are really bad and affect every hour of the day. If you've ever felt like you were the only person in the world with your particular health ailment, read this book, and you won't feel alone. There is a strange comfort knowing that there are others out there who know exactly what misery you're going through.
