Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have.
My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!
