The Big Excitement for Me

My facebook status reads:

Is excited that she did a successful chair to couch and couch to chair transfer for the first time in her life!!!!!!”

yes folks, I did it independently it wasn’t easy nor was it supervised by someone able-bodied. My friends who also have cerebral palsy were witness. I know some of you are probably thinking how crazy I was to do this without someone who was physically able to rescue me should I need it but it was something I knew I could do, and something I knew I would not do independently if I knew someone was physically around that could help me on a physical level. I’m pretty damn proud of myself!

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Congratulations (cue the Rocky theme song)! That is awesome and a huge achievement. These are the kinds of stories that keep us going.
    Just wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about the guest post, and I apologize for not getting to it yet. I’ve been running from hospital to hospital all week, but I’m going to devote some time to the post tonight as long as life doesn’t decide to throw another curveball.
