Subjects for my 2nd year photography project

I am a 21 year old fibromyalgia sufferer and was recently told because I didn't look ill or disabled there is no way that I could suffer with such an illness. This has inspired me to look at illnesses and diseases which may not be visible but which are very much real. I am looking for subjects to photograph for this new body of work however I do not want to make the illness of the subject part of the overall body of work as I think this would then make the project about the illnesses, I'm still unsure completely on whether to include the diagnoses or not. I would just like to raise awareness that there are sufferers of illnesses which people cannot see but the sufferer may struggle quite a lot.
