I appreciate those of you that have answered my question so far, however I have to disagree with some of what was stated. Each disability is different and some are more noticeable than others. In my case, I am visually impaired. I became visually impaired at the age of 15, I am considered high partially sighted, meaning that most people are unaware that I even am visually impaired until I bring out the cane, no, not that kind of cane :-) I only use the cane when needed, such as when I need to smack someone's butt, lol. No, really I only use the cane when I am in unfamiliar places and do not want to end up falling off a cliff or walking into someone's fire play scene unaware that their is a flame about to torch my hair. So like I said, it all depends on the severity of the disability I would think. Using fully functional in my post might not have been the right word to use, more like a sub/slave with no disabilities. In a way though, when you come to think of it, almost everyone has some sort of disability, some more noticeable than others. kiwisub, you mentioned that your former Dom had cancer, I can understand how you feel in his case and that it can weaken a person, I too had cancer, I am a bladder cancer survivor, cancer free now, I just no longer have a bladder, but I am alive and that is what counts the most. Alive to be a useful and exceptional submissive. There is something that you may not realize or perhaps you do know but that is most, not all but most people with a disability work much harder in everything they do. As for me, I give more than one hundred percent in performing any task that is set before me and I enjoy it, especially when I am doing something for someone else, I am pleasing them and that makes me happy that I am doing so.
