    Not Usually Considered A Handicap

    I have primary nocturnal enuresis, which means I have wet the bed my whole life. I'm in my mid-40s and still wet about 5 nights a week on average. I wear a diaper every night, to keep the mattress dry. This condition definitely was a handicap growing up, but I'm OK with it now...

    Not Your Typical Handicap

    My handicap is the result of a very long ago car accident. I was broadsided by a speeding car while riding a bike 40 years ago and it shattered my left femur. The only thing that saved me from a compound fracture was my athleticism and iron hard muscles. The problem was that the...

    I have Muscular Dystrophy,

    which means I'm wheelchair bound for my entire life. Since I was a little girl, I've had a motorized chair to sit in. When I go out in public, I get looks of either pity, or disinterest. I consider my chair a social barrier that keeps people out. Strangers often assume that...
