Special Needs & Special Friendships

Anyone else find it hard to make friends and be able to keep those friends with having a special need or disability? I know I am. When I was in school I found it very hard to find friends and on the other hand I also found it hard to have the friends I had stay in my life. Maybe people see us and think we don’t deserve to have friends, or maybe they think we are funnier than they are. I don’t know. Truth is we DO need friends.
