In a perfect world I would still most likely be labeled as disabled: but I can’t lie, there are some things I wish were vastly different. the tight muscles make the every day task some days harder than others.
I have been asked recently what cerebral palsy feels like and although I have answered that already I would like to add to my response here. I don’t know if I would trade the tight muscles the awkward movements and everything else that comes in part with spastic cerebral palsy. I can only dream of what a “normal” able-bodied life is and I am not sure given the chance to trade what I have, for what I could have, even given the chance would be something that I would do. You see how do you know what you are missing, if you have never missed it? Children will occasionally stop me to ask if I miss walking and I tell them that I have never walked so I don’t know what that’s like so I don’t miss it. All this taken into account I live a full and active life. I have been to Disney world, the theme park in Florida for a total of seven hours. Yes, I went for a day trip on plane to Florida, to go to a theme park. That sounds crazy doesn’t it?
