Last night I had a chat with my new friend Mack who writes the blog Letters to Morgan. Perhaps because it is valentine’s week, we got on the topic of dating and relationships and cerebral palsy. This time isn’t something I am totally comfortable in writing but here goes.
I think it comes without saying that I have lived a life of difference. I know my fare share of social isolation, and that for the most part I am TRULY okay with! Why you make be wondering?
Simple, because I grew up differently than most of my peers and knowing this my response will most likely be different. I have watched my peers go through the changes and have settled in and accepted some of the more social ones like be happy to be simply on the guest list.
But in talking to Mack I remembered my feelings when my friends would find there first boyfriend or girlfriend respectively, and although I was happy for them I wondered if that would ever be me? How could it be me, because all they are going to see is my chair right? I have seen both sides of this coin now and can say that as much as you think you may be invisible – you aren’t; you simply have yet to find the right person!
