"that much"...Having to wear giant glasses to see isn't a huge physical disability either. Nor is a lack of legs, given prosthetics. And when she goes into a nervous breakdown that basically paralyzes her on the spot, that's basically a physical disability. :lol:
Yeah but I'm sure you've seen how difficult it is for Kenji to see things, even with the glasses; he's practically pulling a move on Hisao to even see what he looks like.

That being said, I'm not sure how much of a strenuous disability it would be, but seeing as I have a left eye that's considerably weaker than the right, I'd probably be blind in one eye. I can imagine depth perception being a bit difficult to cope with with something like that.

I suppose. If that's the case: Asperger's Syndrome for me :lol:
I don't think Yamaku focuses on mental disabilities unless they accompany some physical issue like Hanako. You'd need to go somewhere else.

Anyway I'd go because of the ones I already possess. It just seems sensible. Hisao can be jealous because of my mostly identical but less severe heart condition, and Kenji can be jealous because of my slightly better vision. I'd be like better and worse than both of them because I'd have both issues but not to the levels of their individual cases.

A developmental disability. A disability attributable to impaired development, more often than not mental in nature.

Don't go arguing semantics now. :lol:

I connect with nature. I also whisper to other creatures such as frogs, snakes, chickens, cats, spiders, beetles, *Insert random bug that I found on the ground here*, ect.

I guess my disability would be that I can talk to animals. I'm like a real life Elijah Thornberry.

Aspergers is a developmental disability. Not a mental one. Its not like an Autistic, Aspergers Syndrome, or ADD/ADHD person can't work around their disability to have a well off life. They have high enough IQs. Might just need a little help every once in a while. Like someone with a physical disability. Unless we're talking severely autistic or down syndrome (which is a totally different ball park). They might need more help.
The differences between someone with Asperger's and someone who does not are neurological in nature, and while physical clumsiness is a common element in people with Asperger's (though not a criteria for diagnosis) there's little to indicate that the various symptoms of Asperger's relate to anything outside of the brain. I wasn't talking down to people with Asperger's, nor was I saying they couldn't live successful lives. I just stated that such disabilities are beyond the scope of Yamaku. People with neurological disabilities like the ones you listed need a different set of accommodations than the kind we've seen demonstrated at the school (well, aside from the therapy services, anyway), because they face a completely different set of challenges.

And how is talking to animals a disability? That's just a superpower. I think you'd need to see Professor Xavier, not Mutou. :P

I would probably have som kind of skin disease or some form of internal necrosis.

Skin disease because it's genetically probable (i won't go there for the sake of it)

Internal necrosis because It would result in relatively fast and painful death (both emotionally and physically). I have this morbid interest in sad endings in stories so if i would put myself in a novel like KS, it would be something like that.

I have the minor version of a blood disorder that people from a certain part of the world have, however if I had the major version of it i would need blood transfusions every day.. so i guess i would go with that... not really I would just rather have like a hand missing. :lol:

I would probably be legally blind. I wear glasses and am very near sighted. So why not worsen my sight more?

Epilepsy. Though dangerous, it is something I have in real life. So, yeah. Epilepsy.
Either that or my other condition, being legally blind.
Best luck EVAR!

Narcolepsy, Hands down.

You mean if I could actually choose? In that case: Congenital Analgesia.

Wouldn't deform me or handicap me in any way (well, at least not at start), and in the event that I'm injured, I could just take it coolly like the Terminator. 8) Of course, with my inability to detect injuries in lack of any pain response, I could die an early, young death. But ignoring that, I could see this one having more positives than negatives. Congenital Analgesia basically feels like the closest thing to a God Mode real life has to offer.

Slightly amusing since an OC in one of my fics has that
But let's see here, you could potentially:
-accidentally bite off sections your tongue
-break bones
-stab yourself
-easily go blind via objects in the eye
-burn yourself

Congenital insensitivity to pain is one of the more difficult disabilities to live with. Doesn't help the fact it's extremely rare.
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.
