hard to believe it was 16 years ago already

I want to take you back 1997 yes that is 16 years ago. I was 11 years old then, and in severe pain. I was born with dislocated hips. As I understand it this this is quite common in the lives of those of us with cerebral palsy. The pain got the point that I couldn’t put my left foot across my right knee as the pain was just too much. 

I have written in more detail on this blog before but being that today marks the day when I had surgery to correct the painful problem it is on my mind, although at the time this wasn’t the first surgery I had had in my life it was probably one of the hardest for me not from a pain perspective but for the ability to keep entertained while in a body cast for 2 months.

Today I am pain free and have had no negative side effects from 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.

    You tell me. When I had mine finally off, it’s like me being hatched from an egg! The cast is hard to explain to kids and a pain to see for moms. Out of curiosity, how much did the surgery cost? I’ve heard that such outrageous fees have created a medical tourism, driving people away to other countries to have this treatment on a cheap price. I’ve read it from here.
