Happy National Cerebral Palsy Day!

Happy National Cerebral Palsy Day

Today, is National Cerebral Palsy Day.  I have Cerebral Palsy, and I’m happy that I have the function that I do, that said, it took a lot of work.   I had countless hours of Physical therapy and Occupational therapy.

When I was little a lot of people had doubts on if I was going to be able to walk, talk or even write. With help from therapists, and my mother, I am able to walk, talk and have decent handwriting. But that drive also had to come from me. When I was in high school, I started having problems taking my notes during class.  I had to start typing my notes, and I had to start doing exercises to help improve my muscle tone. Now, things are better.

However, some children and adults  aren’t so lucky to have the function that I have-they have to have a lot of help.
