Regardless, my vision is actually getting better on their own, i've learned to focus my eyes alot and it's getting much better.
There's really no "experience to have" because with glasses i can see fine as well, or what i think to be fine. *shrugs* Just like living without it in my opinion. Guess it's all on how ya look at it :3
It was gradual, and only completely stopped working last year, but I didn't have a problem with it. I just look at the advantages of my condition and any other ailments, like being able to use the bathroom immediately after some guy who makes it impossible for life to exist in there.neio wrote:I've heard losing smell can be quite traumatic. Was yours a gradual loss, and does it bother you much?Numb wrote: I've lost my sense of smell already, and that in turn has reduced my taste slightly. Oddly enough, my hearing has improved through all of this.
That was actually a happy accident, I didn't realise it had a meaning like that until a week after I first took it. I just used the word numb because I thought it sounded coolPandas wrote: Hence that name numb? Woah, thats instense O.o

As far as physical goes, the best I got is a mild Congenital Tinnitus.
Constant ringing in my ears, for as far as I remember. It's strange thinking I have never heard actual silence before...
Eh, you don't miss what you never had.
Also my right knee has been playing up for a while now.
Probably should take more care of it.
Kind of hard to just "select" a disability though...
Not really a disability though. Might need a valve replacement in 20 years but BAV doesn’t affect me orherwise

Better than being illegally blind!
As for me, I have a (fairly, if such a thing can be called that) mild case of cerebral palsy with spastic diplegia, I also have a VP shunt.
Whether it's a comedy or a tragedy, if there is cheering, the story will continue on.
Just like the many lives.
For the us who are still in it and still in the journey, send warm blessings.

Hello, new poster to the forum. I see the poll is long gone but figured I would hang out and say hello.
As of posting, I have visual disabilities and am blind.
- Retinopathy of Prematurity Stage 4 with Lattice Degeneration.
- Missing Vertebra in my spine.
- Venous insufficiency.
If anyone has any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them.
Browsing the forums and randomly coming across this thread, so just wanted to contribute to the statistic. Would love to see how many people voted blank to compare but oh well, what can you do with a 14 year old post.
As for me, I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a somewhat rare (mostly due to missed diagnoses if you ask me) genetic connective tissue disorder. It affects... basically everything, because connective tissue tends to, you know, connect stuff. I'd say my case is on the milder side of the spectrum and most related issues are under control, but I already have osteoarthritis and suffer frequent dislocations (particularly on my shoulders and hips) and I have pathologically bad balance due to terrible proprioception. I use a collapsible cane from time to time that I always carry in my backpack, but other than that I seem healthy from an outside perspective.
I also happen to be autistic which funnily enough is a common comorbidity of Ehlers-Danlos, but I guess that doesn't count! Wouldn't be able to tell which one is more 'disabling' either, lol.
