Disability. Such a loaded word. I was talking to a good friend of mine recently about the concept of disability. She has a rare condition that affects all areas of her life, but to look at her you wouldn't be able to tell there was anything up. In her case, because her condition is not outwardly apparent, it is downplayed or dismissed by others. Nevertheless, it makes life much harder for her, and sometimes it would be nice if people could recognize her struggles.
