I am feeling trapped in this body. I get a little cabin fever in the summer with grandiose plans to do this that seem out of reach such as the Vancouver trip.  I am frustrated by my peers who take for granted the luxury of having mom and dads car or as I have  gotten their own cars and this physical freedom. 

Call it a bit of jealously on my part, but I long for that assumed freedom that my peers just take for granted. I am tired of waiting for the bus, I am tired of being controlled by others schedules that don’t always make sense to me. I want to be able to “just go”. I know that may not be attainable but I can dream can’t?

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.

    Have you tried doing any research along these lines? This website features a listing of travel agencies that specialize in Disability Travel: http://www.disabledtravelers.com/tour_operators.htm

    I would guess that it isn’t cheap, but it might be a goal worth saving for. You might want to travel ‘vicariously’ and email some of these tour operators, find out what they charge and what they provide, do some googling to see if you might enjoy what they are offering, and then making decisions based on those factors. Maybe one of the tour operators could come up with a vacation for you that fits your budget and timeframe–it might be Vermont instead of Vancouver, or South Carolina instead of South Africa, but even if you can go a few hundred miles away to a resort location or a place of historical interest, that can be fun, too, and it sure beats sitting at home.

    My Son had cerebral palsy. I often find it hard to understand his world. Reading other first hand experiences really helps. Keep up the good work.
