Definition of disability
The above definition comes from the Merriam-Webster dictionary. I must admit that I find this very interesting having been referred to as disabled or handicapped (having a condition that markedly restricts one’s ability to function physically, mentally, or socially.) at certain times in my life.
I never felt defined by this definition, despite being born with a congenital birth defect to my right arm. I have always felt that this was a label which others would assign to me, assuming that because of my appearance, I must have limited abilities.
