Understanding and having my Cerebral Palsy symptoms confirmed has now brought me to a different emotional place. In a way, I’m more at peace, because trying to work out what was wrong with me was always my biggest challenge and everything feels less of a challenge now. I feel comforted because I know.
Although I always knew there was no getting away from the fact that I am governed 100% by my neurological difficulties, for which I have no control, going through my MRI scan papers two and a half weeks’ ago, has now confirmed what I came to assume.
It’s like having a badly wired plug that never works. I have no choice but to live my life in the way I manage, because of neurological impairments that can never right themselves. A lack of other people’s understanding on what I deal with makes it incredibly difficult.
Generally, there seems to be little tolerance and understanding around what people deal with. People and society, must have more tolerance, empathy and compassion, not only because they would expect it for themselves if the shoe were on the other foot, but because it’s the right thing to do.
