Why would anyone hate you for having hearing aids?

There is nothing wrong with needing hearing aids.

forgot to mention that...when i was 18 i was told that i've lost about 40% of my hearing, and it's only gotten worse since then. if you're more than three feet away from me you'd have to shout, or i'd have no chance of understanding you. i'd have a hearing aid if i had health insurance.

Used to struggle pretty hard with dermatillomania, which is compulsive skin picking. Imagine if every time you saw a pimple, bump, spot, scab, ingrown hair, etc. on your skin, every other thought disappeared to become one singular thought: GET RID OF IT. Then you scratch til it's gone, then you feel guilty about doing this disgusting thing to yourself, which triggers more anxiety, which makes you notice this pimple coming up, which makes you scratch it, which triggers more anxiety...

It's a vicious cycle.

Still catch myself at it every so often, but I've gotten FAR better than I was a year ago. Having someone in my life who I feel truly cares about me and trying to find the root causes of my anxiety and obsession with perfection with a counselor really helped. Now I'm trying to eliminate ever getting blemishes in the first place, because pimples are all I pick anymore.

Pretty mild, not really considered a real "disability" I suppose, since I can still do everything someone without can do, other than feel good in a two piece swimsuit ever again... I have multitudes of very dark scars all across my back that I'm not sure will ever go away without some expensive scar removal.

I have asthma and really weak lungs (I'm SUPER prone to URIs and get them every spring)
I have joint issues in my hands (comes with being a musician sadly)
Reynaud's Disease (runs in the family, and so far has proven to be progressive in me gone from my finger tips to my entire hands in the span of 4 years)
Social Issues... sort of... I'm a control freak and a major introvert

Ooh, yeah me too. I was just diagnosed with it recently when my ankle was swollen for NO REASON. I learned that that's what have caused my back and knee problems since I was a kid. Now I wear custom-made shoe inserts that have worked wonders.

I also have Epilepsy, but thank the Lord it's not a disability because It's mostly controlled with medicine and I just get mild partial ones once in a while.
