In Daredevil: Born Again, our hero more or less loses it ... for a while, and disappears.
His friends, Foggy and Gloriana O'Breen, Matt Murdock's ex, try to help with no success, and Glori says to Foggy: "When a bomb went off back in Ireland it was like this ... waitin ... not knowin."
It is good to know that able-bodied people feel what I feel, but the "waitin," not being able to do anything, is the worst part of being disabled for me.
I can't drive someone somewhere if they need it.
When I was in a car accident in college, Mom came to the hospital to get me. She brought my little sister, mainly for company. I couldn't even do that because I can't sit very long without needing to be excused.
I can't fix everything either, which granted, no one can, but it kills me.
All I can do is be goofy, and that feels pretty inadequate.
