I personaly don't have a disability but my Older brother, Younger sister and little brother are diagnosed with autism. Non have never taken any medication, it's mostly mental. I've seen my oldest brother go from the bottem of the most deep and darkest pit(depression/cutting/trying to commit suicide) and come out the other end and I am so proud of him. He seems in alot better place now :]
If we're defining such as "disabilities": ADHD and major depressive disorder. I also have synaesthesia which, in the past, has been referred to as a mental disorder but the neuroscientific world has largely dropped that label.
Some people have told me I have Apspergers but I don't believe it.
I do have ADD though which makes it really hard for me to concentrate in classes. >.> I also can't see without my glasses. D:
But I think my phobia of moths is the worst (dunno if this counts as a disability but it has proven to get in my way of doing some important things in the past). Once there was a huge one in a classroom and when it started flapping around I quickly took my stuff and left and missed the whole class. =___= I even tried getting rid of the phobia on my own but no luck. I swear they are out to get me! Always flying like a drunk blind bastard at 1am and trying to be all "in yo face!" I don't like other bugs that fly all "in yo face" either but moths are specially high on the list if not the first ones.
I'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder after I had a huge freakout after a breakup with a long distance girlfriend. However, when I was hospitalized, they couldn't really pin down what was wrong with me. I've always been kind of nervous and emotional, and being overemotional is what caused a lot of setbacks in my life, but I'm not sure if I'd call that a disability.
I'm also afraid of heights, which is bad because I work in the back at Best Buy getting TVs down from time to time. ^^
I've had it under control for a long time. Medication and willpower. If you'd have known me during the summer of 2004, you might have seen much different behavior out of me. ^^
Ladders aren't so bad except for the huge industrial ones that I have to climb in computers. What I'm really scared of is the open TV forklift, which is basically just a mobile elevator with nothing between you and falling except removable chains.
I wouldn't say yes or no. I don't know what type of disability you're specifically talking about. I would say that the only one I had is my right arm spasms that I take medicine for. Otherwise, I don't take medication for anything else or have a reason to.
Well, they tell me I have, um, PDD-NOS, but I dont know what that is. They also said I had something called Schizo-Effective disorder, Bipolar type. Which is complete bullshit.
Now, if you wanna know what a REAL disability of mine is, it's called Hydrophobia. Fear of water. Try telling me thats not a disability when you flip shit everytime you have to something as simple and as necesary as taking a damn shower. Or if its raining outside and you have to go somewhere. Also, I have debilitating co-dependency issues. I cant function without certain people. Like, I have to have a hug from this girl at my house every night before I go to bed, or it will take me abit longer to go to sleep. Well, once, she wasnt there, and I didnt sleep at all. That shits fucked up.
In conclusion, I'm incredibly fucked up on a number of levels, with no viable diagnosis. fml
