Susan Boyle's Disabilities
This article mentions what I hadn't known before, that Boyle has learning disabilities and neurological damage from not getting enough oxygen at one point. Despite that, she took care of her mother until the mother died two years ago, and she had the guts to enter the competition, where she performed magnificently. For someone who has lived as isolated a life as she has to suddenly have so much attention on her would be hard for anyone to deal with. I understand that she has entered a treatment facility for nervous exhaustion AFTER winning 2nd place in the talent show. She has plans to make an album though. What a great example of courage she is, and I'm so glad she has her chance to shine.
