    I have a legitimate reason to be on disability, but you wouldn't be able to tell by looking at me. If you saw me loading up my car from shopping, you'd probably I think I was a regular working joe.

    Of course, I don't have a parking sticker, either. So you wouldn't know I was disabled unless we were talking about how I got my money.

    It probably has more with how you present yourself to others, you bring it on yourself.

    First I was diagnosed with a form of mental retardation, where my reading skills were an issue. After that incorrect diagnosis, I was diagnosed with another disability.

    No, my own reading scores are no longer a problem according to diagnosticians or even the GRE (as I scored in at about the 89 percentile).

    So you are saying you are incapable of doing anything that would pay you wage as much as your disability?

    You're the one started a thread about approaching people without visible disabilities and railing at them for milking the system. I fail to see how we brought this on ourselves.

    So in essence there was no reason for you to feel offended other than to draw attention to yourself?

    I'm not the one riding about town trying to remove financial resources from people that I erroneously conclude are leeches on society.

    Yes, I do have a right to be offended. You're making disparaging and inaccurate comments about me and others with disabilities.
