Hey there In these types of situations you have a choice. You can either explain to the person that you have a disability or you can let the incident go. It mostly depends on who says something and in what tone it's intended. I doubt most people would laugh at you once you've explained things and if they do, that's their problem and you can choose to ignore them.

its your choice follow your heart. no one laughs at someone for having a problem if they do they are the ones with problems. it all depends on you. but im sure that they wont laugh . are they really gonna laugh cause you have cerapalsy? i really dont think so but do what you think is right
good luck

I have Noonan Syndrome, which makes me clumsy. I spill drinks often as a result, but I've learned to take the clumsiness in my stride and make a joke about it. I've found it's the best way of dealing it - to not give a crap

basically what i want to tell you is we all have challenges. we all have something wrong with us. But that doesn't make us any less human and it doesn't mean we are crippled. I am legally blind so i know what it's like to have a disability. People don't really and cant really get it because they are not disabled. So be strong and keep your chin up. Your only obstical is yourself.

hello my heart where have you been
I missed you when you left
you ran away with that senseless boy
and left me dim and dry
like a faded flower in the mist

Come back my heart. you have a home here
In this place that is my soul
I want to feel like whole again. don't waste your time with him

Have faith my heart. You'll get a second chance
come back to me and you will not be alone
