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.

    The perception of disability being negative comes from the fact that becoming disabled usually involves a negative event like severe illness or accident. Some of my disabled friends became disabled as a result of illness or accident that nearly KILLED them. I tell people what CP is and show them it is just my life experience. Honesty is the best way.

    I like listening to audiobooks a lot and I write books using voice dictation software. I have a page on FB where I spread awareness- Katherine Hayward my life with Cerebral Palsy. I also make videos on YouTube (cpchick81). I am in a chair and people also always think I had an accident or mine is spinal injiry. They do not know what to say when I tell them I have CP. I also have hydrocephalus. Whenever I have a bad day, I listen to music or an audiobook and feel more relaxed. I am always positive.
