Re: disabled and feeling meaningless
I just wanted to say everything that Leaciesmum said was spot on. You've come this far. You've fought to get to 17, and your still young.
Keep going. You cannot right off love yet, love is the most pwerful thing, and if you fall in love together, no amount of CP and disbibilty will matter. Also look back through the threads, you will find a lady and a man with spastic quad CP who have married and now successfully adopted a child.
You are going to make a difference with your life if you keep going. Look at Stephen Hawkin.
