finding nemo: being a little fish in the big blogging ocean

You know when your excited about something, and you want to reach that goal that you have set your mind to? when I started blogging years ago my goal was to get on Problogger. When I first had a clue what blogging was, it was because of Darren at Problogger who showed me the new road of blogging. It took me a few years of reading Problogger to realize that I too had something to contribute  to the online space. Before I started blogging I worried because I didn’t know that I had any value to offer, or at least I wondered if anyone else would see value in my words.I decided to try a little experiment it was then that I bit the bullet so to speak and started blogging myself.

Cerebral Palsy Employment Situation

Employment issues continue to be an issue in today’s society, especially for those with notable disabilities. I say a notable disabilities because some people have invisible disabilities or aren’t even aware they have some form of disability yet. But, if you do know you have a disability it makes trying to find a job, or some form of gainful employment a challenge. Continue reading

how to include your child in winter play

Let’s be honest, no matter how you look at it I hate snow. Other than it looks pretty I don’t really see any value in snow. I’m not one of these people that likes to do winter activities. In fact, I feel like winter causes more problems for my spasticity then usual.

cerebral palsy and physical therapy

As a child growing up with cerebral palsy it makes your childhood different sure you play like any other kid but there was also a facet of cerebral palsy and physical therapy that for me became my household chore and I had to walk in my walker I hated it and I think that is a common reaction to it because of the amount of energy expelled I think. I don’t think I truly understood the value of cerebral palsy and physical therapy until I was sick and recently hospitalized. Because I was in bed for almost six weeks I lost a lot of muscle mass and had to start from square one if you will. I seriously was shocked at how week I was, it was weird because my brain was eager but I was physically weak so I would go to do something but I couldn’t physically do what I had previously been able to do
I only wish there was a way to make physical therapy fun for children. But the reality I feel is that is a difficult task, I think that if there was a way to make the kids engage in therapy without realizing it is therapy that’s the only way one would succeed at their goal.
As an adult however, I understand the value of physical therapy that I never understood as a teenager.
I think if you are struggling to have your child do physical therapy I want you to know you aren’t alone. As the child growing up doing therapy I hated it so I suspect others do too

is cerebral palsy contagious or not

In this post I answer the question is cerebral palsy contagious that I get asked all the time. The question actually kind of makes me sad from a social perspective to think that people worry that cerebral palsy is contagious. I grew up often feeling and or being socially isolated from my peers and as I am writing this I am wondering if my peers worried without my knowledge that cerebral palsy is contagious, because the simple answer is that no cerebral palsy is not contagious.
