I used to argue with myself and gave them names. Then I thought I had some form of MPD until I realized I was being a retard, so I stopped that. Getting drunk helped. Also, ADHD isn't that bad unless it transcends into other disorders, in which case it isn't ADHD anymore.
being unable to focus translates into everything taking a billion times longer than it should. Luckily my medication pretty much eradicates it, so it's mostly fine.

I already have a form of cerebral palsy. Life with spastic diplegea is pretty normal, except I miss out on a lot of physical activities, not being able to balance, run very well, or jump at all. If I were deaf I could probably still do those things so I would pick that instead of this.

It amazes me why quite a few people want tourettes - it's not fun.
I know a guy with tourettes. He got sent to hospital because he randomly shouted "butt shit" at some large biker guy. Yeah, not so appealing now, is it?
Even less appealing when you get disqualified from exams by throwing the paper to the floor and screaming "fuck english."
But it does have funny points. Like that guy on YouTube who can change the calendar months using the word "piss".

Another thing that amazes is me is why nobody has said something like diabetes or anything else that you can live with day to day.
I enjoy everything the devs hate. This includes and is not limited to: Pokemon, K-ON! and Lego.

To be honest...
I'm really happy that I don't have any disability. However I'll try to answer the question, in a way based on my current "way of life":

The things I'd me most scared of would be everything that requires you to have a large amount of surgeries or/and surgeries on a regular basis. I was scared enough during the last few days before some of the small (I mean really small... I only had general anaesthetics twice) surgeries I had so far.
I could imagine taking higher doses of medicine...
Loosing a limb depends. I don't know how to put it, but I imagine it would be "easier" if I can keep my arms.
Loosing the ability to see would be terrible, even more than giving up the ability to communicate. I really like foreign languages, you see.

Don't you think it's somehow strange to "trade" and "calculate" with these kind of things?

To an extent, yeah it is strange, but I don't think that it is abnormal for people to ponder such things.

By far, I find that my arms/hands and my eyesight are much more important to me than my legs or hearing. I use computers and play videogames all the time, and they rely on the former pair much more than the latter.

pretty much that, yeah. Also I'd argue that it's easy to compensate for lack of legs than arms, and lack of hearing than sight. Humans are very sight dependent and most of our learned dexterity is in the arms, and most things are designed to be used with arms.

LOL Dynasty Warriors joke. But I doubt they'd put you in a school for handicap children just because you have a missing eye.
My disability would be having only 1.5 of an arm. My right arm would have everything, and my left arm would have everything just to the shoulder down to the ankle. The rest is gone. That way Rin and I would have something in common.

Lose a leg and probably your hand and you got a winning combination, go all out on halloween, Ivory peg leg, hook and eyepatch

I don't really see why it is such a surprise to you, I mean, I think most of us here, already ill or not, would not enjoy any of this stuff, I mean of course it might be fun for a day or two but these are called disabilities and diseases for a reason.

Yeah, diabetes probably wasn't mentioned because it sucks having it.
I'm not saying having a lost common body part or being mute/deaf doesn't suck. I do say that I'd rather lose an arm than having diabetes. I wouldn''t have to watch what i'm eating and have to check my blood pressure every now and then. I had a friend that was diagnosed with diabetes at age 8, she does not like it at all.

Well, I wouldn't want one but if I were to have one I would want it to be having 542 kills then get shot in the jaw taking out my left cheek and crushing my jaw to pieces.

Does that count?
