I’ve been unknowingly disabled all my life. I was born with autism and hEDS. I know have some extra diagnoses which are part of my hEDS, lactose intolerance and slow bowel motility. In addition I am waiting for an assessment for ADHD to see if that’s an aspect of my neurodiversity too. This video is about disability coping with limitations.
I have been aware of the way my disabilities interact with and limit my life for around five years now. During that time I’ve been through a range of emotions about my situation. Whichever way I look at it my disabilities limit me from doing all the things that I would like to do.
I’m working on adjusting and learning about coping with limitations. So that I can enjoy the rest of my life with a positive mindset. Here are my thoughts on this topic so far;

If you are limited in the exercise of running, consider resistance exercising perhaps no more than half an hour a few days a week. Use dumbbells and look up free exercise programs and take advantage of the flexibility to work around and minimize any difficulties. I am on the spectrum but there is no standard stereotype to make others exactly like me, but I made amateur bodybuilding the powerful protector of my physical health which helps me.
