'Severely disabled'

Is this easier for people to acknowledge about you when it’s a physical rather than mental issue?

The personal assistant who cleans for me was saying I’m the youngest of the people she helps. Then she corrected herself and said Oh there’s X(can’t remember name she said) she’s 47 and severely disabled.
I did wonder whether she was indicating that she thinks I’m not severely disabled hence adding the statement about the other person.

I guess with something physical it’s less hidden and easier to see. Few of us here are floridly psychotic 24x365. For some of us negative symptoms are more prominent rather than the more ‘In your face’ positive symptoms. It can take a certain set of factors to occur to make it obvious that things aren’t as ‘ok’ as an initial reckoning indicated .
