I read about that before. If at all, Anajamois seems to be a very mild case, though.
I'm quite attached to all my body parts - both physically and psycologically - but if someone prefers artificial legs over his natural ones, who am I to tell him no? It won't be much longer until artifice is better anyway. Maybe we will see more voluntary amputees then...

Without my glasses I can't see more then an arms length away from my face.

So correctable nearsightedness, not sure on the numbers though.

Other mental disabilities too, but this thread is for physical disabilities.

KS 3011, and the disabilities are the students bodies reject the mechanical augmentation that are the standard?
Ugh! Horrible idea.

If I didn't suck at action scenes I'd totally make that into a fanfic. Sounds like a hilarious idea :D

Deaf in my left ear, its rather annoying really, as headphones come in a pair, and in some songs one will play something the other does something else. And your enjoyment of the song just dies.

Cause of this : NIHL (Noise induced hearing loss) Car Crash, apparently the sound exceeded 230 Db for the damage caused

I've seen and owned headphones with a "mono" switch, but they are uncommon.

Yeah. mono's been way way outdated unfortunately for me, I too once owned a pair, before breaking them. :( They should sell single headphone headphones, for people with deafness in one ear

Not a physical disability per se, but I have Haemophilia B which is a blood disorder. If it got any worse, I could see myself being sent somewhere like Yamaku.
