Provide an "Invisible Disability" badge similar to the "Baby on Board" badge.

We're Londoners - we don't like talking to strangers on public transport. But if you have MS, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, epilepsy, or any number of other medical issues that can't be seen, but which impair mobility or cause pain or fatigue, sometimes it would be nice to have a seat on the Tube.  TfL already thoughtfully provides a "Baby on Board" badge, to allow pregnant women to let other commuters know they'd like to be offered a seat - wouldn't it be great if there was an "Invisible Disability" badge as well?

A friend of mine with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome said she'd "wear it with pride," and another friend with lupus said it would be "wonderful."

TfL, please - provide an "Invisible Disability" badge and let Londoners who need it maintain their urban solitude AND get a seat at rush hour!
