cerebral palsy drooling

One of the things that was an issue for me as a child was drooling. I personally feel that my drooling has lessened with age. I have noted a sense of relaxation in my facial muscles and thus the drooling improved. As a kid I used to wear wrist sweat bands to help wipe away the moisture from my skin.

This isn’t to say I don’t drool today it just happens when I am tired or when my facial muscles go from tight to relaxed without warning. The fact is there isn’t much in my knowledge hat you can do to prevent this inconvenient issue but I know that it became less of an issue for me with age. I don’t know if its just me, or if this is just my personal experience with drooling but none the less I thought it was worth exploring as I have seen a lot of discussion.

I’m curious is drooling an issue for you now was it an issue for you as a child how did you manage it?

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.

  1. Hi Laura,

    I have cerebral palsy and for me too it became less of an issue as I age. I don’t know if you experienced this, but my parents constantly reminded me to swallow my saliva. I guess the reflex ended up kicking in…

    • Hi Sophie,
      As always, thank you for visiting my site and commenting, I encourage you to send me an email if you have ideas for posts I should be writing in the future. As for your comment regarding drooling, I think that is something that every child with cerebral palsy hears from their parents and caregivers the time they are very young. So yes, I can relate to what you are saying!
