Cerebral Palsy might be a disability, we don’t let that define us. We are just like any other person with our own unique details about each of us.
There are four kinds of cerebral palsy, spastic, athetoid, ataxic, and mixed.
I have spastic form, which means my muscles get tight and i jump people scare me. When people get scared and jump, it feels like a firecracker going back off in my whole body. Different things are harder for different people, it depends on how much movement they have in their body.
For me I can do a lot of things that I can do by myself. Like driving my chair, typing with one finger, etc. It might be a little harder and a little longer than normal for me to do stuff myself, if people just give me sometime I can do pretty much anything I want.
We have have emotions just like everyone else in the world, we might all show them in different ways but we all have emotions some way somehow. Positive vibes is key even on a rough day when you have CP because we are in pain a lot depending on the day we have.
I will leave you with a final quote, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line”
