Honorable Blank, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Also with a disability I have struggles on trying to understand how society works and I get bullied by women including adults about having a disability.
