Accommodating people with hidden disabilities
I am on earth to fulfill that purpose, whatever it may be. If I don't do it, then there will be something missing in the Kingdom.

It aims to build awareness of disabilities as a source of diversity and not as a source of deficit.

Lately, I've tried to train myself to lead a normal life, but the lack of money makes things very difficult. It used to be that I couldn't get along with anybody.My wife does not work steady and I have a family of 5 to support.
