I do so many things, especially house chores. I do it very easily and there is nothing difficult for me as far as house chores are concerned. I do everything.


I was five years when I was attacked by this disease and I was swollen up. My whole body became very big. When I was being treated at the hospital it passed through one of my sides. Then I became like this. And I was hospitalized for two good years before I was able to come like this.

Anytime I went to school my friends ridiculed me. They laughed at me so I felt very bad going to school. And the school, too, was not accessible in my situation, so I stopped school. As I was the only disabled person among them at that time, I felt very bad when they were talking about those things. In case I had any other person who also was disabled, we may be sharing experiences but at that time I was the only person. So here and there, here and there, I said no, I had to quit it. I couldn’t stand it.

About my general social relationships or family relationships, there is nothing wrong with them. It was only at that time, during my schooling relationship. Apart from that, it’s normal.

The happiest day in my life, which always comes, is Sunday. When I go to church and I listen to the sermon, that is when I become very happy.

If you meet another person with a disability, what would you tell them?

I will only encourage anybody who is a disabled that I meet. I will only encourage him or her, console him or her, share my experience with him or her.

What is your best ability?

I do so many things, especially house chores. I do it very easily and there is nothing difficult for me as far as house chores are concerned. I do everything.
