cerebral palsy teenage years

It’s pretty safe to say we all have fond memories of our teen years, or okay in some cases not so fond memories.  Having a disability like cerebral palsy offers its own unique challenges I think, I say I think because having cerebral palsy is all I have known and will ever know.

Because I can’t speculate about what life without a disability is like I am going to share what my teen years were like.  Social isolation was a norm for me, not that I isolated myself but my peers did. I don’t feel like it was intentional as I was always well liked, but to be frank, I am sure it was a challenge for them to realize that they couldn’t easily invite me over to their house and I don’t think it occurs to people could meet them places.

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.

    I was very social in my teen years as long as I could get a ride from a friend or family(which was not always easy). I become more aware of my CP in my teen years.
