If so, what is it? Is it physical? Mental? or both? 


I have a  Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy disorder and my 8 year old has a trauma related brain and spinal injury. She can walk but she has issues with talking.

Mine is mental and physical and so is hers.

We both have service dogs. Her's is a Jack Russell Terrier and mine is a Pit Bull mix.

I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, mood disorder, borderline personality disorder, ibs.  I'm on Celexa and that seems to help and I just work thru my chronic pain and everything to the best that I can.

My 1st DD has Sensory Processing Disorder, major global delays, ADD, and anxiety, dyspraxia (low muscle tone).

My 2nd DD has Sensory Processing Disorder, major ADHD,  disruptive behavior disorder, Autism, anxiety.

Needless to say it's hectic around here but somehow in someway, we manage.  We make it thru.

I have Severe Depression, Severe Anxiety , Panic Attacks & PTSD ( on daily meds and counselling). DD was born with plagiocephaly ( corrected at 9 months ) and low muscle tone ( she was doing PT from 8 months old to 16 months old). She will always have issues with keeping up sometimes but its not effecting her too much right now.

 I'm not sure what you'd call mine. it's not mental, but when i think of physical i think of people with spinal disorders and stuff. needless to say i've been on disabilty for about 15 yrs and it's a couple of things.
