Im legally blind, i think 20/400 in one eye and 20/370 in the other but my vision is able to be correct through laser surgery to be perfect or close enough that i don't need glasses. SO i don't know why you have "cant be corrected to (blah blah)"
Regardless, my vision is actually getting better on their own, i've learned to focus my eyes alot and it's getting much better.

There's really no "experience to have" because with glasses i can see fine as well, or what i think to be fine. *shrugs* Just like living without it in my opinion. Guess it's all on how ya look at it :3

I've heard losing smell can be quite traumatic. Was yours a gradual loss, and does it bother you much?
It was gradual, and only completely stopped working last year, but I didn't have a problem with it. I just look at the advantages of my condition and any other ailments, like being able to use the bathroom immediately after some guy who makes it impossible for life to exist in there.

That was actually a happy accident, I didn't realise it had a meaning like that until a week after I first took it. I just used the word numb because I thought it sounded cool :lol:

Mental health problems in a nutshell
now I sound like a tumblr kid

As far as physical goes, the best I got is a mild Congenital Tinnitus.
Constant ringing in my ears, for as far as I remember. It's strange thinking I have never heard actual silence before...
Eh, you don't miss what you never had.

Also my right knee has been playing up for a while now.
Probably should take more care of it.

Probably severe asthma, seeing as I already have a milder form of it and not much else wrong physically.

Kind of hard to just "select" a disability though...
