My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit, as well as physically.
It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.
I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.
We are all different, but we share the same human spirit. Perhaps it’s human nature that we adapt and survive.

I have no idea [what my IQ is]. People who boast about their I.Q. are losers.
