The problem with Cerebral Palsy as I see it, is that none of us will ever have an explanation of exactly how our brain damage manifests itself, or works.
Even with a diagnosis, the Specialists don’t know exactly how our brain damage presents. With Cerebral Palsy, a diagnosis doesn’t end there because each Cerebral Palsy brain is affected differently.
It may never be understood how the Cerebral Palsy diagnosis manifests itself in the patient and is one of the reasons why there is no Cerebral Palsy research. It has been a pain staking exercise for me to work through my symptoms through my MRI scan results.
I wanted someone to say, this is your brain, this is how your brain works, this is the damage and this is how your body and your brain work together. Do those of us with Cerebral Palsy ever understand in detail all there is to know about our neurological impairments? I believe not.
