A close friend of mine gave me this thought, which I want to share with you. Imagine how difficult it would be to run backwards, that would be the same for people with Cerebral Palsy trying to move forward. The more we try and concentrate the slower our brains work.
My brain periodically switches off like a light bulb, then I need to rest. It always has done, but only now does it make complete sense. I never understood it back then. On the out-set, apart from the physical signs associated with Cerebral Palsy, to the untrained eye, we look and think as everyone else does, but our reality is very different.
We are completely cross-wired emotionally and physically. Because of the lack of research on adult Cerebral Palsy, there isn’t a lot of information out there, but through various discussions with my Neurologist, he does agree that I am totally cross-wired.
I would like to find out more. It must be frustrating for others having to work around my limitations, whilst at the same time needing to accept I have those limitations. I’m just wondering if there is anyone out there who can shed light on this issue.
