It presented fairly early in my mom's pregnancy, so I was born with it. I also have Arnold Chiari Malformation, hydrocephalus, and scoliosis.What do you want people to know about your daily life?My daily life is relatively unextraordinary. I work. I play video games, I read, and I obsess over Big Brother and Doctor Who. My disability does affect my daily life, and I definitely worry about how I will deal with the struggles it presents when I'm on my own, but I genuinely like my life.What frightens you?I'm frightened by the fact that there are bigger hurdles that I have to face as a disabled person, and although I have a great support system, I sometims fear that I can't rely on myself for that support, and I don't have the benefit of hindsight to know that I can make it work on my own.What is your favorite purchase under $100Mobility aid: My grabber, which I use to grab things that fall or are too high. Less serious answer: Last summer, I purchased an audiobook, which is an in-depth analysis of Season 3 of Big Brother.Anything you want to cover or promote?I definitely think talking about my adoescence would be interesting. I was never an outgoing child, but I had friends in elementary school. Then, in fifth grade, I had a medical situation arise that made it, so I had to be pulled out of school for the rest of the year. When I got returned to school the following year, I felt different and closed off, and it became very hard for me to make friends, and I became a bit resentful that nobody seemed to want to be my friend. It made for a very isolating middle school through high school experience.
