Steve Caballero: Scoliosis
The guitarist for The Faction, Odd Man Out and Urethane and skateboarding legend was born with scoliosis, causing his head to tilt slightly toward his right due to his bending spine. This apparently did not impair his skills on both the skateboard and in his career as a punk musician.

Lewis Capaldi: Tourette syndrome
It's a neurological condition that causes involuntary tics, and I don't know enough about it to say anything else.
Dolly Parton: Endometriosis
It's a very painful condition that causes the lining of the uterus to grow on other organs in your body so she had a partial hysterectomy and therefore, can't get pregnant.

Neil Young: Red - green colourblind
It's apparently affected his painting hobby, so he needs to ask his friends to make sure the colours don't clash.

This accounted for him dropping out of school in his teens as said condition sadly wasn't treated as well as it is today. It also necessitated him to have his memoirs written on his behalf by a co-author.

The jazz guitarist also lost one of his vocal cords and feared for his career. Luckily, he is still playing today.

In "Open Book," Jessica Simpson has admitted to trauma from sexual abuse she endured as a girl, from a female friend, and to having become a heavy abuser of alcohol, if not a full-blown alcoholic, to attempt to dull the trauma from which she still suffers. Her alcohol abuse is in remission; her sexual trauma still remains less than fully resolved.
