Be they physical or mental share away.

For me obviously, there is the blindness. Besides that, I have Cerebral Palsy on my left side.

I also have a mental disability that I'm not gonna bring up for now, unless someone asks.

I have a rare mental illness by the name of DID, also got TBI so yay for having several personalities with a broken brain!

Dissociative identity disorder, Trauma Brain Injury, thought I'd clear that confusion up a bit.

Looked up DID can't imagine dealing with that without meds. I say that cause I went off my meds once it was maddening and drove me crazy.

I'm fine now though.

I think I have developed social Stuttering, sorry if I ramble on

I never use to as far as I know, but It's like I intentionally repeat words. Like it doesn't feel like a stutter, I am actually repeating words.

I can have normal conversations with people, usually on topics I am most suited for. It's usually at work where Ill do it most, but when I'm outside , or in public it usually doesn't happen.

It's odd , it's almost like I repeat words because I'm trying to actively search for better ways to get my point across.

I guess its the simple fact I don't do small talk, because I don't actually relate to a lot of peoples hobbies or down time. Most people I'm surrounded by have families, or they live this social life, and here I'm just shutting people out, working behind the scenes.

I guess to develop something like that would be bound to happen, even though I was a pretty good talker years ago, I guess it is more or less to do with saying something important rather than trying to create this forced situation.

It's no surprise we develop these things, and I actively look at the situation. I'm basically my own therapist no joke, I just don't know what to say to people, if I wanted to be myself I would be the active person who listens, and speaks when spoken to. I don't hold onto a lot of information, and if I do it is basically for the soul purpose of breaking something down because of personal enjoyment.

Long story short..... It's complicated? but not really I just don't care, but I can talk to you, even though I am more interested in what you have to say to me so I can analyze people, and collect information.

Nobody interests me enough to merit social interaction, yet some people just think they really want to get to know me

it's actually not all that bad to deal with DID without the meds, since the meds they had me on nearly killed me a few times, thus the reason why I hesitate now in wanting to take any of those. since they misdiagnosed me, the meds I were taking were for other things, not for DID. yay for doctors not getting it right

Probably not a disability, but my vision looks like this at night / dark areas with bright light sources. During the day / in lit areas I have heavy visual noise.

Looks like Night Blindness, that's an actual medical condition.

I have scoliosis and a memory disorder.

-The memory disorder is not as serious as STML, it is closer to ADHD, where I lose focus A LOT, as well as forget about things that I am not directly thinking of, will not come to mind unless I try to think of them... So, it's like I can only remember things that I want to remember, not ones that I should remember, you can imagine how hard it is to turn in homework on time.(that's the most basic way of describing it )

-The scoliosis I got from a tumor in one of my back ribs, so it is not a genetic/naturally occurring disorder. The doctors did not realize the tumor was there (because I'm the type who never complains when they're in pain) until it had been there for 9 months, and had significantly bent my spine into a C shape, but when they did take the tumor out (benign, thank goodness) my spine stayed the same shape.

both of these seem relatively small compared to your problems tho.

So that's what it's called? It's been like this for years, as long as I can remember. Thanks for the info.

You're welcome but you should definitely consult an ophthalmologist if you haven't already. Night Blindness in and of itself isn't actually a disorder, rather it's a symptom of various other underlying problems. Some treatable and others not so much but there's a possibility an eye doctor could improve your quality of life.

Last time I went, they said I was developing Glaucoma. Got a more thorough check later and that apparently isn't the case. I'll probably still go blind within 10 years, anyways - that's just my luck.
