@Late Did you look at the date that I wrote that last post? That was over three years ago! Haha Wow! But to answer your question, I have a very rare disease that's progressive. In the years since I wrote that last post, I've been on a number of stronger medicines to cope with the disease's progression and just one of them that I take every night is over $1,000 a month, if I didn't have insurance. I think my total in monthly medicine cost would be close to $1,600 a month without insurance, but I come out of pocket about $90 a month in total. Granted, that's after I pay $500 a month for insurance for my myself and family, so yes, it's indeed expensive and still broken after the so-called "reformation."

@Mr_Trill3506 This past January, I thought I was having a heart attack - I'm 30, but I take strong medicines for other ailments - and I found out that I've got a bit of back flow on one of my valves, as well as an irregular heartbeat. Thankfully, the doctor said that I won't need an operation on it for at least another 15-20 years. Something to look forward to, I guess. #sarcasm

@Wheels2050 I was being very facetious when I wrote that 3 years ago. ;)

I had that problem myself, but not too often. Most just ask why I'm so quiet and comment about how quiet I am, once in a while someone would try to see if they could convince me to speak but no very often. The father through school I got the less it happened, though I also opened up a lot by my junior year. My teacher did make me take a TV productions class to try and force me to talk to people, cause we all know how forcing people who are uncomfortable talking to others into uncomfortable situations more talkative.

I prefer to consider this an ability rather than a disability, but I'm autistic. I don't consider it a condition. I consider it a different way of thinking. It only becomes a disability when ignorant jerks refuse to let me think the way I do.

Story of my life. All throughout elementary school, there were these girls who always tried to get me to talk to them. Fortunately they gave up in middle school. This year though, (8th grade) I decided to be in the school musical (I love music). Since then, the trying to talk to me has started again. Teachers did the same as well. Introversion is not a problem. Why do people make it one?

That...actually works. It's called Exposure Therapy and it's what helped me get comfortable with talking. The more you talk to people (it's better to start with small groups and one-on-ones, which that class might actually be), the more comfortable you get with it. I'm pretty quiet, but I don't have nearly as much trouble talking to people as I used to. I can even talk in front of a whole class with relatively little trouble, despite fainting when I was forced to do that at the beginning of High School. Of course, it helps that I can concentrete on what I'm doing so hard that I can block everything else out...

I have Type 1 diabetes where I have to take 6 or more insulin shots a day. I was diagnosed with it when I was 17 and spent 7 days in the hospital with 4 of them in an ICU unit. It can be kinda depressing at times but there are worse things you can have like cancer.

I don't know if you can quite consider this a disability, but I'm very allergic to Sunflower seeds and oil. I have to have any EpiPen in case I eat anything with it. Sunflower oil is considered one of the healthiest oils available and is in almost everything. It also isn't a commonly known allergy so asking restaurants about oils is irritating. I'm glad it isn't peanuts, wheat, or gluten though.

I'm the complete opposite of shy. I believe in communication, I'm a bit of a moter mouth and I'm pretty outspoken a lot of the time, but i don't give a damn because life's short. My quirk however is Anxiety which tends to rear it's ugly head half of the time. If I'm confident with how i look and blah blah it's reduced significantly, but if i'm having a day where things aren't going my way it's ramped up again depending. :p It can be quite sevre at times too. And not a habbit to obviously get into but if i were to bang back a few beer the anxiety is history. And i'm not a fan of antidpressents/anti-anxiety medication. Sure it can help but the side effects range from insomnia, looking under the weather/skin problems, feeling emotionally numb and limbido loss and who knows what the long term side effects are.

Anyways, Basically situations where you walk into a quite room where all eyes are on you, or even presenting things in class are what get me. the most silliest and easiest daily tasks seem like an obstacle at times. XP Which is crazy, because i used to work on movie sets and my anxiety was pretty much non exsistent.

i have a 12 inch rod in my leg and 4 screws from a nasty car wreck when i snapped my femur.
sometimes the whole side of my body aches but after so many years you learn to deal with it.
it doesnt stop me from being mobile though. no one is above a roundhouse.
i also had/have crohns disease and had to get cut open.
sometimes my stomach will hurt out of nowhere, they removed a mass that was as big as a softball and then they stapled my waist back together.
it doesnt stop me from eating whatever i want though. no chicken fried steak is above being eaten.
if you find humor in life it keeps you young, sit around and complain everyday it keeps you old, thats when the real pain sets in.
guess this disqualifies me as being disabled.

Oh, it's not an allergy or anything comparable, but I am lactose intolerant!

It's not of the "Drinks milk, runs to the bathroom"-kind, but it gets annoying when I forget about it and drink milk (or eat something made with milk) and then I feel all bloated and sick lol (like right now, damn frappuccino).

Delactosed milk is a blessing, even if my dad dislikes it :P

Yeah I was also called quiet & weird for long time but I stopped talking in school after a while because people were calling me porky pig & taz & kept impliling about my stuttering saying I sounded like those to looney tune character's saying I couldn't talk right. I can talk but hate my stuttering it comes & goes every once in while now a day's but still annoying to put up with. It was much worse when I first started school in kindergarden every other word was stuttering truly annoying when you want to say something & you can't get the words out exactly right.

@TheDreamingHawk,

No offense but you'd be in your 20's then like me? I just like guessing lol no offense sorry. :)

No offense but why would kids ask you if you needed help? That's not a bad thing but sound's a little odd.

Unforunately I'm the opposite little kids alway's want to hang out with me or talk to me for some reason. I've tried being around people who are my age but they normally don't seem to want anything to do with me unless there from another country & I'm talking to them on the web. It's just weird. There two excuses are saying about my stuttering & saying I act immature which they've said for years so I just ignore it any more so. I believe some of my so called immaturity comes from me being autistic but I could be wrong but that where I think it comes from on alot of level's.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)
