I think it’s safe to say that growing up as a teenager is difficult at the best of times. But imagine you are a teenager with a disability that holds a whole host of other challenges.
I think one of the interesting components to having a disability during adolescence is that it gives you a unique perspective on things around you. At the same time however, I think having the disability can make you feel alone and isolated in your teen years. Not to mention, the way you achieve activities of daily living is often different than your peers , which I assume only attribute to feeling different.
Here’s a few suggestions I have that may help you.
Recognized as being different men’s you are unique and there’s nothing wrong with that. I understand that being different is difficult but honestly if we were all the same the world would be boring
Understand that it is going to take you considerably longer than your peers to accomplish the same task. This is just because you’re cerebral palsy inhibits you
Don’t forget that even though you have a disability your still a teenager, and honestly the role of a teenager is to have fun!
