Taking a break from my usual writing, these are my thoughts today. What they don’t tell you when you’re born prematurely with Cerebral Palsy is that you may have a whole host of other issues to deal with.
For anyone with reflux and digestion problems, it’s also easy to struggle with weight loss through reflux. There is no information out there to explain that every time you bring up acid, the body is failing to absorb nutrients and that causes weight loss.
We tend to have to adjust our diets so that we eat without dealing with these problems, particularly at night. Reflux and digestion problems are more prevalent in twins and being born premature. If you’re unlucky enough to be premature and have Cerebral Palsy, it makes it slightly more difficult.
Where does anyone go from here?
We need to make sure we put on weight, eat foods that agree with us, take supplements to encourage wellness, particularly a probiotics. Our biggest challenge though, is to make sure we stay well.
