How to handle the cold weather with cerebral palsy

Hi guys today is not the best day for me physically. Its cold and startle reflex seems to be in full force.

I don’t know how you are handling all the cold weather, I personally don’t take too kindly from a muscle perspective.
So my question to all you loyal readers is how do you manage to make the physically days more manageable?

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.

    Because I am getting older my bones hurt that is not related to CP. BUT at change of weather, I get muscle cramps, mostly at night. I take Xanax 0.5 to lessen the occurrences.

    • personally never been a fan of meds but if it works hey who cares! at night i sleep with a hot water bottle or sometimes if its really bad i let my 20 dog sleep with me he naturally lies across my legs which normally i hate but its a rough night physically its a god send

    When your tighter the startle(Moro) reflex goes nuts. I hit somebody in the face involuntarily with my Moro reflex when it was 19 degrees out. Me, I use heating pads and keep myself stretched and moving.

  3. Wear layers! In winter you will catch me with at least two pairs of socks on (maybe even slippers too). Plus two or three layers of shirts.
