Wow, this was a really interesting thread. I really don't have any super interesting disabilities...

I tore my ACL, MCL, PCL, and meniscus hiking once. Because I have no balance and my friends thought it would be good to push me while hiking up a mountain, and I fell, and landed on my right leg REALLY wrong. Then they got to carry me down the mountain. And 2 surgeries later, my knee will need replacing by the time I'm 40. So that kinda complicates the whole climbing up stairs thing.

My only other health issue is that I have a hyperactive immune system. I am allergic to EVERYTHING. (Well, not everything, but a lot of things) Deathly allergic to peanuts, bee stings, and strawberries. I have to carry around an epipen for those three. But I'm also allergic to pineapple, shrimp, cockroaches (strange, I know, but this is what the blood tests I had done said), carob (that fake chocolate stuff), mushrooms, and obviously anything having to do with pollen or trees in the spring/summer.

Because of my hyperactive immune system, I get sick every once in a while. I haven't been sick in 5 years, and the time before that was 3 years. I've been sick a total of 6 times in my 19 years of existence. And every time, the sickness lasts for months. 5 years ago, I had 4 months of bronchitis that turned into pneumonia. I had the flu once for 7 weeks. Its nice, but it sucks at the same time. Because I never know when its going to happen.....

Yea, Chocolate, that is one of my problems too, I have unequeal leg length, and from the surgery that was mandatory to remove the cancerous tumor from my leg (fibular) 1/3 of that bone is missing, and I have pins and plates in my ankle and I broke the plates, (too eager to do what I used to love to do, dance) and I had to have a Lizerov attached to my leg for another 9 mos, after being in a cast and on crutches for 18mos, and enduring those 18 mos, of Chemotherapy, and Radiation, now my leg is completely uneven, because I could no longer stand the aggrivation with the lizerov, ( the one that people get from car accidents) sometimes on their head, like a metal base, with rings around it, and spikey things sticking out, that was on my leg, and I had it prematurley removed, and I am now suffering because of it..I have a lift in my shoe for support, and I limp a lot, and it does hurt, especially in cold winter weather.

Some times genetic conditions are not inherited. Some types are how to say it without scientific jargon... Carried by the DNA and thus become hereditary, there are some others that become manifest after the DNA assembles during the early stages of pregnancy. The DNA strands miss-assemble (so to speak) and that can create some disorders but i believe those are not hereditary.
