The only thing really wrong is that I can be slow to understand but I can learn new things and once I catch on, I'm fine.

In the future I would like to join a cloistered community. I'm worried if I disclose my injury, they'll check in with their medical personal and they'll deny me. If I don't disclose and they find out later, that will probably cause problems. You can see my dilemma.

The best thing to do is be honest and straight forward about who you truly are and your condition. Jesus told the 70 followers that were to go from town to town proclaiming the Good News that if a town welcomes as you are that is fine, if they reject you becuase of the Good News then shake the dust off your feet.
I'm sure there is some ministry you can find that will accept you just as you are, just keep looking. Good Luck and God Bless.
