anxiety, and depression are the only disabilities that i am aware of.

as for what im doing to fix it/overcome it, there isn't really much i can do. im friendless offline so there isnt much i can do outside (so i remain in my room almost all day) i try to play games to forget about it, but most games i have noticed are lacking features and it just gets boring. i used to try to learn how to become a indie game designer/creator, but i have not been able to find any good information online about that so until i get a high school diploma i cant do anything about that.

most of the time i just spend sleeping, and the little time i am away i might just spend on random stuff that passes time. so pretty much all i can do is wait...
 there is always the thing with seeking professional help but i have no idea how to even get something like that (and i also dont see how something like a counselor would help) i did see the school counselor but he didnt really help that much (besides getting me out of class for like 40 minutes, so im happy about that) he just kept asking questions, but didnt really have any responses/helpful answers.

I used to be legally blind in both eyes (about 20/200 without glasses) and with glasses it was about (20/40).  That was since birth.  Had to have retina surgery to repair one eye, and they used an air bubble which might have been new at the time, but it worked.  Just had cataract surgery to take out both lenses and replace them one year ago, so 30+ years of my life I didn't have good vision and only now can enjoy good vision, without glasses most of the time.  Reading on the computer, I have $4 readers with a 1.5 magnification.  When I couldn't see well, I always needed to hold books close to me because I was nearsighted, barely could get a driver's license because I couldn't read the chart at the DMV and had to get a doctor approval that I could see well enough in at least one eye to drive.  I didn't have to adjust a lot because 20/40 with glasses wasn't terrible.

Outside of vision, I didn't have any diagnosed disability.

I lacked full use of a limb since birth. It's improved quite a bit over the years as I've been making more and more use of it. The affected limb is slightly shorter than the "good" limb. It wasn't easy growing up like that--being mocked and taunted. I was usually last picked when choosing up sides for games in the school yard. After-school jobs and dating were not options to be explored either.

Since becoming more confident and having developed other skills and talents, I find myself a bit more in demand, even appreciated.

Just a slight burning of the hands and feet whenever I touch anything too long. Only theory I have is that it's misfiring nerve pain from very minor brain damage. I got it after working on a house some years back, most likely from inhaling microscopic particles of ancient carpet adhesive. Woke up with the next day with it, never went away.
