Why is it that handicapped aren't expected to do anything?

I have had epilepsy since I was three and began wearing glasses at age 2. I have worn contacts since age 20/ I have always wanted to make something out of myself. My parents, assistant principal never told me not to achieve. I couldn't achieve anything in the technical colleges that I attended; I couldn't get out of basic classes. The job, at which I excelled most, was the one at Ryan's Steakhouse. I was there for nine years,but had to quit do to so many seizures. I loved making my own money. It was actually just brought to my attention that the handicapped aren't expected to do for themselves. We, with disabilities, need to be able to do for ourselves to some capacity.. What about when our parents die?
