    Used To Hate It

    When I was young, I used to hate my disability. I never even thought of it as disability, but as personal shortcoming. But now I accept and embrace my situation.

    It's The Worst Thing In My Life

    I feel with this anxiety,

    depression, and hormonal problems that I am disabled. I do not feel like myself, and I haven't gotten out in over a week. I feel like I have no control over everything. It sucks.

    I don't like being different from everybody

    else. I get called disabled just because of my eyesight problem, why? Things that are really easy for lots of people are really hard for me. If I want to go to a shop, I first have to learn the rout to there and practise it lots of times. I'm being ungrateful I know, but you...
