“If I could tell the world just one thing it would be we’re all ok.” From the song hands by Jewel
Perhaps one of the most annoyingly frustrating parts of having cerebral palsy for me at least is that it does effect my hands. Yes for those of you reading this that no me offline this would perhaps come as a surprise because it isn’t evident in my every day movement.
It does impact in areas of dressing where buttons and zippers are involved. I am determined though, as a young teen my worker got me into making beaded daisy chain bracelets. This was a task that in the beginning was laborious, but a task that I enjoyed kept and was able to eventually manipulate on my own short of threading my own needle with thread.
It fascinates me that people with cerebral palsy with the same diagnoses are impacted so differently. I have a friend that impacted more in her hands then I and her speech is comprised whereas mine is not. Interesting isn’t it?
