Anamorphic LEGO Build to show how Invisible Disabilities may make us appear all together, but at the same time we are falling apart. Alt text: Top: LEGO minifig appearing normal and together. Bottom: slightly different angle shows minifig parts are actually all separate—furthest back in the habitat is arms, then legs, then a torso, and finally a head. @shanzy_h

I tend to over-commit, which inevitably leads to me feeling overwhelmed. This simple build depicts the feeling of being overwhelmed—like being buried up to my neck in so much sand. #BuildYourChallenge Alt text: Rob's sigfig sits buried under a mound of sand, represented with 1x1 tan and dark tan plates. There's a scared expression on his face. Just out of reach is his trusty sigfig calculator. @foreversorting  I have two forms of muscular dystrophy and one is called Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis. It can cause me to become paralyzed unexpectedly. There are all sorts of triggers, including waking up from sleep.  Alt text: My muscular dystrophy causes paralysis. Sometimes I'm stuck in bed, unable to reach my rescue meds. @interactivebricks

This is based around the concept that I could never have got as far as I have without other people. I've still done a lot of work, but other people are the reason why I've been able to push my boulders up my hills. Alt text: A hill with rocky grey at the bottom with a gradient up to lush green at the top. A pink minifigure pushes a boulder up the hill. Other minifigures already at the top help by pulling the boulder up with ropes. @evo_maynard  My mom raised three kids as a single parent. Money was always an issue for our household, and something I want to make sure my growing family never has to worry about. #BuildYourChallenge Alt text: A yellow minifigure approaches the embodiment of financial security: a brick-built US $100 bill. @little_rhody_lego

I struggle with social anxiety so I tried to illustrate that even LEGO minifigures might sometimes find it difficult to relax when there’s too much going on.  Alt text: Several LEGO minifigures enjoy a house party, but one partygoer is in a full suit of armor! @thebrownbuilder  …Breaking free of "the bottle" has helped me realize how strong I am and what I am capable of; I am no longer giving control over to something else. #BuildYourChallenge Alt text: Two bottles show minifigs: one has a blank face stuck inside, while the other has the minifig breaking out. @brickthisway
