Understanding

I’ve seen, quite a few times, that it’s not terrible that I’ve got my physical disabilities.  I’ve met people, a fair number of them, who suffer from an ABI, but unless I knew it, I’d have never known.  They don’t show any physical evidence, and they’re an excellent display of why the injury is known as “invisible.”   Some of their injuries are, on a self-invented scale, worse than mine, and their abilities for memory aren’t as capable as mine, but unless someone is told that they’ve suffered one, nobody would know.  If they see me next to them, then I’d have no doubts that I’d be asked if I needed some help, and they would look at them thinking that they’re rude for not doing so.  It’s unfair, but what the eyes see is often used as the start of what a person thinks.
