Technology helps me forget my cerebral palsy

It is nice when I have moments where I don’t think about adapting to make it is easier for myself, or when the adaption has become so second nature to me that it no longer feels like adaption.

Dragon is one of those examples for me, as is doing youtube videos. My ability to produce this content is no different then the next person and that truly feels freeing.

What technology in your life makes you feel free?

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.

    My crutches make me feel free because it makes my balance so much better. I don’t have to constantly watch for bumps and unevenness and my disability is obvious to cars and people which makes things safer and easier socially. When I don’t use the crutches people can’t tell I have CP. Sometimes it is nice to have a visible disability.

    Facebook has been freeing for me socially, as well as some CP chat rooms/forums I’m discovering. I find that the empathy I am seeking from the world is met from chatting with other young people with CP. This isn’t technology but I’ve found that horseback riding has helped my muscles and strengthened my back, and also has been a source of joy.

    Unfortunately, I have found some technologies I’ve tried to be a source of frustration and discouragement when I get my hopes up. I tried a wheelchair computer and Dragon years ago with no luck. Dragon was difficult for my speech pattern, I wonder if it’s gotten any better?

    Thank you, have a great weekend!
