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 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 think as everyone else does, but what we deal with 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 confirms that I am totally cross-wired.
Although it must be frustrating for others who must work around my limitations, sadly it will always be harder for me.
