Guess My Disability (Bjork) | Lineup | Cut

(both laughing) – Do you laugh when you’re nervous? – Yes. – I am! Can you just hold your horses? (“In the Hall of the Mountain King”) My name is Bjork. – I’m guessing stuff, but I
don’t know what I’m guessing. – Whew, okay. (Bjork laughs) – A little.
(Bjork laughs) Hello! – Hi.
– I’m Bjork. – Hi, nice to meet you.
– So good to meet you. What is your name? – Carolyn. – Carolyn, okay. So I can see you have a hard time walking. This is like, really
hard, and I don’t want her to have to stand for this long, you guys. – No, you’re fine. (both laughing) Is it in your muscles? – It is. That’s not like, the primary system. It’s like a secondary effect. A lot of the stuff that it
affects is like my balance. Like, sometimes my hands will just randomly stop doing things. – Oh, okay. I got nothing, dude, nothing. What is your disability? – I have cerebral palsy, which
is commonly abbreviated CP. – How does that affect your life? – Well, neurological disorders
can be kind of patchy, so I’ll have really good
days, and then other times, I’ll have really bad days, but
that doesn’t necessarily mean that I feel like I’m unable to do things. – Sorry I didn’t even get close. (Bjork laughs) – You’re totally fine. If I hadn’t spent my entire
life in the medical system and somebody just sprung this on me, I would be like, what the fuck? (both laughing) Like, I wouldn’t know
what it would be, so. – Yeah, I guess. Hello. – Hey.
– I’m Bjork. – I’m Lonnie, nice to meet you. – Nice to meet you. So, tell me how your disability
affects your daily life. – Because of it, I don’t really do much. I kind of prefer to isolate myself. – Do you prefer that?
– Yeah. – Hmm. I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole life, and that’s kind of how I feel. I like being alone, but I
also like being with people, so that’s what I would think. – I mean, I do have anxiety. It’s kind of a part of it. I have BPD. – What is that? – Borderline Personality Disorder. – When did you realize? – After I left high school,
I moved out and everything, and I was like, you know,
maybe I need some help, ’cause I’m kind of all over the place. And I kept trying to kill
myself, which isn’t fun. – I never would have guessed. – Oh, thanks, I think. – And I guess it’s just
one of those things that it’s just like, you just
never know someone’s story. – I’m Rachel. – Hi. – I have multiple disabilities, so. – How does it affect your work? – The onset only happened
my senior year of college, so these kind of prohibited my
original professional goals. – Mmhmm. Why do you have a chair? ‘Cause you just get tired, or? – It has to do with
one of my body systems. – Ah, got it, okay. I don’t know what this would be called, but maybe your nervous
system just has a hard time communicating with another
system, is my guess. I think that’s my final guess. – Okay. But yeah, my conditions
aren’t very common. I guess the top three would be something called Postural Orthostatic
Tachycardia Syndrome, which basically means when I’m upright, my heart rate goes up really fast. So that’s why, you know, if
I’m using my transport chair, it’s a lot easier for me
to go out and do things. – Right. – Second is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and then the third one you
probably know, narcolepsy. – Thank you for sharing that. I appreciate it.
(Bjork laughs) I am sweating. I’m nervous, and I’m anxious, and this is a lot.
(Bjork laughs) Hello.
– Hi. – How’s it going?
– It’s good. I don’t want you to be nervous. I guarantee you, there’s
nothing you’re gonna ask me that hasn’t been asked or said. – Do you have many limitations? (woman laughs) – My personality, I’m gonna say no. I can do anything I wanna do. I’ve been living with
this for like, 38 years. So I don’t know any different. – Were you teased when you were younger? – Severely. – Do you feel like people with your disability are commonly teased? – I think because there
is a stereotype around it, you do hear a lot of jokes from
comedians, from television. It really paints this disability
in a really bad light. – Oh, is it Tourette’s? That’s just what comes
to mind because of what you’re explaining, but I
wouldn’t have thought that. So, did I guess you right? – You did guess it right! – I would have never
thought with what I know from TV and movies and all that stuff. – What do you know from TV and movies? – Just the way it’s depicted,
it’s like, you know, blurting out random stuff. Not at all, like, not at all. – I’m holding back my tics a little. When I leave here, I’m gonna
let loose and just not. (Bjork laughs) So like, when you were saying limitations, like, going to the movies, for example. I love to go to the movies,
but I don’t go by myself, ’cause I’ve been kicked
out of a theater before. Medications don’t work well for me. I end up with every side effect. And so, it’s kind of a question
of, do I take the medication to make the world comfortable. – Or do I not? – Or do I not take it,
and I’m comfortable? – Well, thank you for
educating me on that, because I just, I can’t get over that. Like, completely. – Different. – Different than what
I thought or imagined. So, I’m so grateful, thank you. Thank you so much.
– Mmhmm. – Hello.
– Hello. – How’s it going?
– Good. – [Bjork] So nice to meet you. Bjork, what was your name again? – Emilina. – Emilina, beautiful name. All right, so, you’re wheelchair-bound. Have you been this way your whole life? – Actually, what do you mean by this way? – Have you not been able to walk your whole life is what I mean. – There was a small window
where I was able to walk, but I’ve always had a disability. – Okay. Does this have to do
with your spine at all? – Yes.
– It does? I think I know what this is, but I can’t remember what it’s called. – No, but I just, I feel
like I know this one for the first time since I
started this whole thing, and so I feel like I want to be right. I’m so blanking on the word. It’s like, hurting my feelings. (Bjork laughs) – You’re not hurting my
feelings if you don’t remember. – Thank you so much.
(Bjork laughs) I think you have a problem
with your spinal cord? – Is that your final answer? – Yes. – I was born with spina bifida. – Yes, that’s what I thought. (Emilina laughs) Give me an example of some of the stupidity that you encounter. (Emilina laughs) I do makeup and I’m a voice actor. I get a lot of, how do you
do makeup from a chair? – What?
(Bjork laughs) – Really? How do you do voiceovers sitting down? I wasn’t aware that I
needed my butt up, you know? – They’re like, almost
limiting you, you know? It’s like, they put those limits on you. – [Emilina] Right. – Right? Thank you so much.
– Thank you. (Bjork laughs) – Hello. – I’m Sean. – I’m Bjork, nice to meet you. Is it more of like an internal thing? – It’s an internal thing. – What do you do for work? – I am a mechanic now. – Where did you used to work before? – I worked in the Air Force. – You were in the Air Force? PTSD? – Why do you say that? – Just like being in that environment I feel like can cause PTSD. – Being at home can cause PTSD. – I guess that’s true. That’s fair. Okay, I don’t know, that’s
still my final guess, just because I don’t know. (Sean laughs) Okay, so I know I got you wrong. – No, you got me right. – Oh, I did? – Yeah, you were absolutely right. – Oh. – I have physical triggers,
which are loud noises, and then I have subconscious triggers, which I didn’t even know that
I had until late last year. So if I’m driving in the car, and the sun is coming through the window just right and it heats the side of my
face, I’m back in Afghanistan. – Wow. – So for years, I thought
I was just going crazy, until, you know, I see a
psychiatrist in a VA hospital. – [Bjork] Yeah. – And so, you know,
this is because of this, and this is because of this. – Thank you for sharing. (Sean laughs) – Nice to meet you. – Nice to meet you, I’m Bjork. – I’m Gray. – Let’s start with your
social interactions. – Ah, what social interactions? – Do you not have social interactions? – Very, very little. – Because of pain or just your heart? (Bjork laughs) – It’s pain mostly, but
there is a lot of fatigue. – Were you born with this, or no? – Huh, I’m gonna say yes, and the reason it’s a little unclear is there’s not a ton of
research behind that. – Is it something that only affects women? – Men do not have the necessary organs for this to happen to them. – Is it endometriosis? Because I know there’s not
too much research about it, and men don’t have the organs, so I imagine that it
would be some lady bits. (Bjork laughs) Did I guess you right or wrong? – You got me right, which
was like, I was shocked. Medical professionals
don’t even know what it is. – Right. – They think that if you have a baby, it will cure your endometriosis. – What? – This is still being told. In fact, I’ve heard
about an 18-year-old girl who was told to get pregnant. A lot of women, when they’re pregnant, they often don’t have as many symptoms, mostly because they’re not on their cycle. And then my other favorite
is having a hysterectomy, ’cause that’ll cure it too,
which is also not true. – Wow. – Yeah, ’cause endometriosis
is not inside the uterus. – Oh. – It grows on the organs
outside the uterus. And so, pregnancy, hysterectomy, no, that doesn’t cure endometriosis. There is no cure. – That’s crazy. – Tada! (both laughing) – Oh my God. I can’t imagine that. – I feel like I learned a lot. I felt like I was pretty
uneducated on like, just different disabilities,
and I get anxious, and so, it’s happening now, but
yeah, I have severe anxiety. (Bjork sobs) – I don’t know. I never have, but it is something that keeps me away from a lot, like, just affects how I
work, and I’ve left jobs because I just get too
overwhelmed or things like that. So, yeah, I mean, it affects my life, but I guess I just feel like
some people have it worse than me, and so I don’t, I
just never considered it that. (crew applauds) (Bjork laughs)

  1. It's so lovely that those awesome people still smile,have a passion for life and so energetic despite their disability,remember physical disability still makes you a normal human,only mental disability I mean being a bad person makes you not normal person.

  2. When she was talking about her anxiety at the end and started having a episode i literally screamed "THATS ME!!!"

  3. 10:45 Why is she crying? Anxiety is nothing compared to ptsd. Just when the sun is hitting me it feels like i'm back in afghanistan, that got me. And did he cry? No.

  4. I knew BJORK, cuz Skrillex played it on his trailer, and thank him for showing me this artist! ㅅㅇㅋ

  5. …..the end of this video kind of put something into light for me.

    I have severe anxiety but every time Ive heard of people reacting from it, its usually something they can somewhat hide or its internal, or its the polar opposite and its something that looks really scary and severe.

    Im 24 and Ive struggled with crying from my anxiety my entire life. I was bullied for it. It damages my entire professional image. Its caused major rifts with family members who cant seem to understand why I cant stop.

    Ive never seen another person react by crying when they get emotional or overwhelmed like I do until now. Usually when you hear about anxiety, you only hear about full blown panic attacks with shaking and hyperventilating and the symptoms of a heart attack. I wasnt sure if I had anxiety because it wasnt always like that, so I thought it was just me being too sensitive, too emotional, Ive heard it all. But its taken me a long time to realize that it goes so much deeper than that. Even if I dont have those full blown panic attacks(the heart attack symptom ones) regularly, I still react the way Bjork did here at the end…and this is the first time I've seen it happen to anyone else this way.

    ….Its kind of an eye opener.

  6. I've never considered myself disabled, I have bpd and endometriosis… this video is making me pensive and confused lol

  7. My heart shattered into millions of little pieces when Bjork started having that little anxiety attack because I experience that too.. but jesus stop the god damn music when someone is crying, wtf???

  8. It’s sad to hear the lady with Tourette’s feel like she can’t go to the movies my cinema in my city has Tourette’s friendly screenings so people can watch comfortably and not have to worry. They also do dementia friendly screenings too

  9. Well her at the end was like looking in a mirror. I feel the same way, that other people have it way worse than me so why should I complain or go to the doctor for it. I just try to hold it in, which doesn't work, then I end up in a full blown attack where I'm hyperventilating myself and my limbs tingle and go numb. Car rides set this off when i'm not the one driving and some social situations. It's like what the hell is wrong with you. Why are you freaking out over something that is totally fine. I feel like maybe I should go to the doctor but i'm scared to be put on medications. I barely take Tylenol much less something prescription for anxiety/panic attacks. There is some comfort in realizing i'm not alone.

  10. I feel bad for this girl, I have severe anxiety (not looking for attention) but idk just makes me sad how she's nearly crying at the end

  11. So I have anxiety and only be people always talk bout me and bully me and when I stand up for myself I get in trouble by the teacher and principal when they do worse than me. So I had an anxiety attack in my 7 period class today and I GOT IN TROUBLE FOR DISTURBING THE CLASS??!! My mom told them bout my issue and they did not believe her bc it is not a physical problem so yeah I get in trouble a lot bc of that but not with my parents just at school.

  12. so people who say this is offensive, i think diffrently because i live with an disorder. when people say this video is offensive because of what? they name their dissability to educate others? nah i rather be put on a video socializing than be censored. how ignorant are people, ofcourse i know they try to be protective. but you gotta think out off both standpoint.

  13. I don't know why but she looks like the girl on Overwatch and like the girl in the song Mercy and like an anime girl she really pretty and generous

  14. Loved seeing the invisible disabilities, I have Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Sjogrens syndrome and people say i don't look like i have a disability all the time buts its something I'm gonna live with for the rest of my life.

  15. in case of endometriosis pregnancy temporarily subdue the pain as estrogen is not produces and also young girls are to get pregnant as long term effect is infertility due to damage in ovary.. but these days cell freezing id the best option and proceed for laparoscopy followed by dienogest visanne tablet

  16. Like, I have Borderline and I never saw someone put the label disability on it, thats quite strange to me

  17. Stay positive you’re amiazng you should be nice to evryone you’re beatifuls dn amaizng stay positive we love you and care this comment is to evryone

  18. I guessed Endometriosis right because I have it as well. I have lots of pain and suffer from infertility from it.

  19. A saying ive the disability but it doesnt have me. I do not let it define who i am. And i choose not to let it bring me down.
    I have struggles but doesnt everyone

  20. If you do this again take someone with ehlers-danlos syndrome. It's also one of those that can't necessarily be seen from the outside 🙂

  21. Idk if it counts as a disability, but I have Celiac, and what the lady with Tourette’s was saying about the stereotype of her disease really hit home. I’m really scared to go to parties or restaurants because I don’t want to have to be anxious about gluten free food and be anxious about being annoying because people with Celiac/who don’t eat gluten in popular culture are annoying and snobby. Also, it sucks how much extra I have to pay for stuff like bread, and it’s so tiring having to read the label every time I try a new food. And it’s a little annoying to explain four times to each new person I meet what Celiac is (because they always forget the details after I tell them). Celiac doesn’t hurt unless I eat gluten, but the way society treats it does hurt. That said, I can’t imagine the strength and bravery of some of these disabled folks! Holy shit! 😮

  22. I guessed MS for Cystic Fibrosis.
    Depression / Anxietyfor BPD.
    I guessed POTS. I have POTS!
    Did not guess Tourettes.
    I guessed paraplegic. The lady was kinda defensive by saying "what do you mean 'this way'".

    Did not guess PTSD. 🙁
    I guessed Endometriosis.

    Bjork is sweet, genuinely curious, caring, and listens intently.

  23. This girl did a great job. That was A LOT to take in and participate in. For everyone. Very brave!

  24. I have only minor Tourette’s and I’m completely thankful for it because it IS painful when you tic. It’s unwanted. And having severe Tourette’s would be so debilitating I can’t even imagine. so I respect those who have severe Tourette’s, you guys are awesome.

  25. Im the same as bjork, i get really uncomfortable while asking about people's disabilities because i seriously dont want to offend the other person and i dont want to sound like an asshole while asking

  26. Give me some of the stupidity you encounter
    Old lady telling me to let the elderly sit
    Me sitting in a wheelchair

  27. 6:12 Really tho why does she feign ignorance of the proper interpretation of a straightforward benign question. It’s a bastardization of the act of communication for the sake of moral posturing, not for the sake of others either… but for yourself! I don’t think that kind of behavior should garner respect.
