Living with a disability




Although there are those in this world who constantly try to tell us that we are all the same, the simple truth is we're not. Obviously it's this diversity that makes life worth living, but it's what also makes the NABD's mission all the more difficult as no two disabilities are quite the same.

Having said that, there are many similarities common to each disability, which is the reason for this section of the site. No matter what your disability is, there's someone else who has the same basic problems caused by their disability as yourself. And this is where you'll find their experiences of living with that disability.

You are not alone.
