    Growing up the youngest of 3 siblings with my

    This is telling. It's acting,

    but this is what disabled people live with everyday. My hat's off to the folks that had the balls to speak up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc_K9c24R5o

    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.

    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.
