It’s been a long while since I’ve written a more personal blog. I’m beginning to struggle with my Cerebral Palsy symptoms, I’ve had better days.
My left side is becoming weaker. I have noticed a decline in my strength in the last 6 months on my Cerebral Palsy side. I’m struggling to grip things in my weaker hand and to open things now, I find myself having to use two hands.
My thoughts go back to the Neurologist who initially diagnosed me 7 years ago. Having been told by my Neurologist that Cerebral Palsy is non-progressive, how can it not be? It stands to reason that as the brain slows down, so too will our physical symptoms and that will have a negative impact on our limbs.
The problem with Cerebral Palsy as we age is the brain being able to keep pace with it, so that our limbs can still function normally. Add the not knowing and the Scoliosis scenario to this Cerebral Palsy scenario and it’s a very tough call.
