I Have Great Respect For People With Disabilities

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 433 People

    As a person with a disability myself ( I have

    spina bifida and am in a wheelchair because of it) I totally understand how hard some days can be. But we rise to the challenge and face the adversity head on and do what needs to get done.

    I have a disability,

    but it is a different kind of disability than mentioned here. My disability is a social disorder called "Asperger's syndrome." This issue causes problems with me being able to make friends & socialise with people.

    Struggle And Reward.

    I often see a local disabled lad from the block getting out of his car, and I watch as much as is respectable as he gets out and clings to the car as he gets his wheelchair out. He must love the freedom of that car so much to go through so much effort to drive it.
