childhood winter blues

So it has been a while since I have posted I find the cold seems to be effecting me physically; but then again who doesn’t feel the impact of a cold and snowy winter? Winter used to impact me a great deal more than it does now I am a child of pneumonia that with age I have seem to grow out of and although I am currently healthy and have been pneumonia free for several years now, winter reminds me to be thankful yet again for my health.

I spent many, many winter days, in hospital with it; this memory begs the question in me is this common in children with cerebral palsy or was it because I was a preemie?

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.

    Does winter only bug you because of pneumonia or would the difficulties of manoeuvring through the snow have anything to do with the dislike of winter? Also what about how tight your muscles get and how that makes life more challenging in winter. How about how difficult it is to get over snow banks if you are trying to get into someone’s house? How about the fact that your parents have to get up in good time to make sure the path is always shovelled so that you can get to your bus? There are lots of challenges about winter, and my guess is that pnuemonia is way down the list.
