Cerebral Palsy in Slow-Motion

I came across an interesting concept: do you ever feel like you’re doing tasks in slow-motion? This is not something I am overly aware of feeling. But I want to explore this, because I am always looking for new and interesting things to write about. Not only for me, but I hope that these unique concepts will be helpful to you also.

I feel that slow-motion is a relative term. So, when exploring this I wish to recognize that each individual may find that they see things differently as it relates to their life. Personally, for me and I can only talk about myself in this context.

Here is what I mean when I speak of slow-motion and cerebral palsy:

As with anything cerebral palsy related you have good days and your more difficult days. You have your days when things feel easy and days where things are certainly more challenging. And obviously, all factors mentioned above can lead to things feeling like they are in slow-motion. I can generally tell when I’m going to have a so called slow-motion day based on how I have slept the night before.

The problem with the so-called slow-motion days, is that they often happen on days when I have a lot going on. You know, the hectic days where you have a thousand and one things going on so generally speaking, speed especially when getting ready in the morning become somewhat of a necessity.

I am curious, who else has experienced life with cerebral palsy in slow-motion? How do you handle these days when you just generally do things slower than normal? What is normal for you in the morning how long does it generally take you to get ready?

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.

    Hell yes! Mostly when I’m tired but sometimes I just go slow motion for no reason what so ever. Slow is not a bad thing though.

    Hi again,I just had a slow motion moment like this when I went out. It was really weird. It pissed people off. They were telling me to hurry up. It sucked. It is cold and my knee hurt after the slow motion thing so I wonder if those factors have something to do with the slow motion.
