Chapman208 writes (in part):

I'm sure the invisible man story has been done many times, but how many have tried to look at the physiological/psychological effects of the transformation, rather than the gee-whiz results of being able to sneak into buildings unseen, etc? (That wasn't rhetorical. I honestly don't know how many times that has been done.)

I reply:

I can't give you a count (or even an example), but I'm confident it's been done multiple times. Generally, the story was about something else, and one of the characters needed to go invisible. The issues you're dealing with are mentioned in passing -- for an example from my imagination: "Obviously, I couldn't leave and I dared not be seen. I quickly tossed my clothes into the hamper, downed my invisibility potion, and buried the flagon in the hamper as well." --Bob (who, for reasons that should now be obvious, does not aspire to write fiction professionally)
