Disabilities

Post

Hey! I was wondering if anyone else here had a disability. I have epilepsy.

-- Fri Sep 28, 2012 5:14 pm --

Or maybe someone has a family member with a disability...

Nope. I have really bad eyesight, but nothing that would be considered a disability. I know a few people in our church who do though.

Well, there is an ten year old girl who is unable to use her legs normally. She normally doesn't talk about it much, so I don't know what exactly the condition is called.

I don't know if this counts, but there is a boy who genetic anger/emotional issues.

Might is be cerebral palsy, T.S? I have a fifteen y/o niece who has cerebral palsy. She never lets it get her down, though! She is such a blessing and encouragement to me.

My older sister actually had epilepsy, but was healed one night at a kids church service at summer camp when she was about 10.

Praise God! I was about 10 when I found out that I had epilepsy. What kind of seizures did she have?

I have bad eyesight, and possibly ADD, though I'm not sure. I certainly have a lot of the symptoms of ADD!

I have a little girl at my church with down syndrome, and I also know two people with epilepsy. Oh, and a girl in my class has ADD and has to take medication for that.

Both me and my sister have slight scoliosis, which means our spines are bent the wrong way. We can't carry anything heavy, and it's sometimes painful.

Same here.

I didn't know that, underseasie! We had two different friends that had spinal surgery to correct the scoliosis. One of them had it really, really badly.

I have a friend who was recently healed from scoliosis about a week ago! God is good and can heal anyone.
