Culled from "Enabled for his glory (Chi chi Iro)"
It was terrible growing up in a society that had few explanations for health issues. There were no role models for me to copy because everybody like me was locked up; but I did not give anyone the chance to keep me behind closed doors. No one like me had accomplished any of the things I dreamed about; they did not go to college nor marry an educated fine man who treated them with respect, nor have children. Their families just took care of them; but I wanted it all. I did not see myself any different . I had my desires, I was going to do my best to make them my reality .
