Brain and body: the disconnect between perception of self and disability
I, when watching brooke elison realized
how one, an accident victim probably perceives themselves as able bodied in dreams. It got me thinking, I have been disabled err differently-abled my whole life Cerebral Palsy is not like a light switch in that regard, but at the same I do think of it as a light switch and heres why: you know when you turn on a light and it flickers? That’s what I believe happens in my brain. When I try to send a message to my lower body (well any limb actually but it’s most noted in my legs) the light flickers if you will and then my brain understand and follows through with said action.
Kids used to ask if I missed walking, how can I miss something I have never known. Or they would ask how I hurt myself etc etc etc which is in part why I write this blog I am a voice for those who can’t. what are your thoughts? part two of this found here
