Spring Has Sprung

The one thing I’ve noticed since the warmer weather is that my body is more forgiving. If you look back at my posts from this past winter, you will notice that although we had a mild winter my body still did not take very kindly to it. Now since there is a suggestion of warmer things to come my body is, is what? I guess it would be safe to say more forgiving! Not to mention, it is easier for me to get around physically. But let me explain further the forgiveness of my body.

Observations I’ve Made over the Years
I have never been a fan of winter, but living in Canada means that snow and colder temperatures are par for the course. I’ve come to realize from personal observation that these climate adjustments, we all make every year, are not easy on me.

I like the snow, but my muscles don’t. I seem to realize that the warmer I stay physically, the happier my muscles are! So, this begs the question does anyone with Cerebral Palsy have similar challenges to those I face in the winter? My answer to tight muscles is generally to apply heat. If you struggle with a similar problem due to heat how do you counter balance given humid temperatures?

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.
