I know that my Cerebral Palsy has become more progressive. I’ve heard the same thing said by others who deal with the same condition.
Where my left side was always fundamentally weaker than my right I feel as though I am now more affected by my Cerebral Palsy. Although that doesn’t please me, I choose to continue to take it in my stride because there’s nothing I can do about it.
Regardless of how I cope, my website will always be my priority and I will work to continue around that. I am not choosing to give up on that, but my typing may be slower. The irony is that having gone through secretarial college not knowing I had a disability, I couldn’t use a manual typewriter.
Where we had typing tests to monitor our typing speed, I remember being told I wasn’t quick enough and feeling disillusioned because others were doing so much better than me. What I didn’t know is that my left arm was also affected.
Something else that I have come to know that I am having to come to terms with. I believe Cerebral Palsy is progressive. It is possible since there has been no testing or research into how we will age with the condition.
