This is a very complex and multifaceted question. And it all depends on your willpower, where you work, and so on. If you take a profession where both disabilities will equally interfere. As a person suffering from schizophrenia (yes, not vaccinated to oneself, but the real one. There is even a reference (:) that it is probably mentally easier to be disabled. Control, pills and a lifestyle help me. And when you, for example, have no hand, hide it harder, even with the most fashionable prosthesis.

If a person is physically disabled, then this is clearly visible and easily detected

If a person is mental, then everything is a little more complicated here, because everyone thinks to himself that he is normal, we do not know how they think, how they feel and other people think. In addition, in our time, they do not take mental illness very seriously.

On the one hand, the impossibility of certain actions, a feeling of inferiority (not for everyone), on the other, uncertainty, fear, often rejection by others

This is difficult to answer. If a person is mentally disabled, for example, he is a schizophrenic, then from time to time he may see people who are not. So I read on the forum a case when a guy saw hallucinations that brutal minotaurs were walking around him and he was being raped, while refusing to admit that he had schizophrenia, trying to believe that he was a courageous kid and that all would pass. Another time he experienced very unpleasant emotions and experiences, with distorted behavior among those around him, even his loved ones. Antipsychotics help such people only 50%, and as a side effect, they also give a bunch of additional little pleasant sensations, such as shaking hands, insomnia, restlessness, apathy and fatigue. And although such a person may not have serious physical health problems, and in some cases even work somewhere, his existence is still associated with constant stress and extremely unpleasant sensations. He can also hear all kinds of voices.

A disabled person with physical health may be in good order, but he may be confined to a wheelchair, experience pain and need help to get around.

And in that and in that case, people usually have almost no prospects in their personal life and career. The society is very scornful and they have no one to walk with, make friends with, except for their own kind. In humans, sensitivity and compassion are not at all developed. This is about the situation when you can cut off the bottom of one picture and no one will need it, or cut off the top and no one will need it anymore.
