I have written on the subject of disability and climate and how it impacts my life, a few times before but when we go from the warm summer weather to the chill of autumn temperatures by body takes a toll. It seems the cooler makes me very aware of my disability and the effect of tight muscles due to cerebral palsy

the impact of disability when the climate changes

My disability and the affect of weather changes really does make a difference in my life. By trying to keep my muscles warm it makes tight muscles brought on by a disability like cerebral palsy more manageable. It took me several years to figure out that I was happier when I ensured that I stayed warm as it takes longer to get sore and tight. That being said there is no fully overcoming the spasticity of disability

My question is for those who have tight muscles how do you manage this aspect of your disability

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.
