The article focuses on a research conducted in order to determine disability-related sources of stress. The research revealed that the most-voiced stressor was bowel or bladder accidents and related problems. The second most-voiced stressor was secondary disability, illness, and injury, whereas public embarrassment, degradation, and discrimination occupied the third place. The coping strategies include spiritual interventions, medical interventions, and social interaction.
