Explaining your disability
I've been curious for a while now as to how other people explain their disability. In particular, I have a non-physical disability which makes it confusing for some folks. They don't understand why I can't do weekend chores for extra lessons (stress) or why sometimes I'd rather not socialize and just ride or hang out in a horse's stall (depression).
I've had varying success in explaining my situation to people and I'm wondering what angles you've taken. I know we touched on this briefly in another thread but I think it's a topic deserving of a thread of its own. How do you explain and what have you done when your explanation seems to be thoroughly misunderstood or ignored?
