Guest -- Good point! (I still don't think that throwing someone's wheelchair off a mountain is an acceptable way of confronting mental illness, either, but that's another rant)

There's also "selective mutism" as one of this age's relatively expected manifestations of mental illness.

Morwen -- I know, right? I think it's part of the spectrum where assistive technology = unsexy. Beautiful women are rendered plain, once they put on glasses, and totally asexual in a wheelchair. And prosthetics can either mark you as evil (Captain Hook, Long John Silver) or inhuman (the Borg).
