The fears of a child with cerebral palsy

I interrupted my series of posts regarding back to school to write this one because I saw this on social media last night and I had to share my views as an adult.

My mother will attest if she read this that I as a child and someone even now as an adult was very fearful. Therefore I can very much relate to the child in this article as it relates to her fears in my case I hate being left in vehicles because I can’t move to rescue myself if needed in an emergency as an adult I have developed coping strategies like carrying my cellphone on the bus so that if the driver ever had to leave the bus and some kind of emergency happened I would have a means call for help my only wish I had developed strategies earlier in my life

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 remember when I was in school in a wheelchair after surgery and they did the mandatory fire drills and the teacher would put me on the porch because the school board’s liability wouldn’t allow anyone to deal with my wheelchair going up and down stairs except my mom. What an isolator.

    Funny that recently, I’ve stayed in the car while Hubby ran in to get something because I didn’t want to get down, I locked the doors and was very aware of my surroundings.

    To ease my family and friend’s fears when I am alone I always have my phone and mace near me.
