Am I over-reacting to this situation?

Am I over-reacting to this situation or should I try and take this organization on to get what I want. What I want is the student discount for an educational conference.

The conference discount is for full-time students only. I attend college part-time due to having MS. I cannot go full-time. They let me join last year at the student discounted rate but that is it. Nothing else and even that membership is now in question.
I was told today that it would be unfair to full-time students to let disabled part-time students attend at the discounted rate. I am really kind of surprised by this response and a little pissed off. Am I being unfair to full-time students by wanting to be treated in the same way they are? I have to admit that I am starting to feel a little sorry for myself and want to send off a hasty response, but I thought I would ask you guys first before doing something I might regret later.
