- Those with some type of disability were 4 times more likely to have attempted suicide
In addition, Antion found correlation analysis studies that indicated that people with disabilities had significantly lower self-awareness and self-esteem and greater social isolation than people without disabilities, as well as significantly less education, more overprotection during childhood, poorer quality of privacy. relationships and lower rates of salaried employment.
Candidate Charlie collins has juvenile macular degeneration and eyesight estimated at 20/500, with 20/20 being the standard for perfect vision.
