I liken not knowing that I had Cerebral Palsy for 46 years, to living in a darkened room during that time, only seeing the world beyond those four walls, when I finally found out that I had Cerebral Palsy.
That was an incredibly difficult period in my life. I’m not sure I’ll ever come to terms with that fact and although I make light of it and have turned my life around through my site and my writing, I am choosing to put a positive slant on this. Not to will make me feel even more negative about my experiences.
It’s unbelievable how this was my life. I still find it hard to say, let alone come to terms with that this was my life. I’m not sure I will ever come to terms my reality. It’s not something you think you’ll ever have to work through.
But for me this is exactly what I’ve had to do and where my journey piecing a diagnosis and my symptoms together began. My time up to this point so late in my life, was literally spent living in the dark.
