My blog today is very closely linked to one or two other blogs already written on the site, but I still feel this needs to be addressed, as a blog in its own right.
How many of us living with a condition really feel that we fit into our lives with what we continually have to deal with, whether we deal with Depression, Bipolar, MS or Cerebral Palsy? These conditions constantly need addressing and re-addressing daily and takes a different kind of patience.
Obviously, I know a lot more about Cerebral Palsy, as that is what I deal with, but I do feel a balance has to be struck between the things we can do and the things we can’t, so that the things we can’t do are done by family members, but done in good grace.
How many family members will make you feel at ease and are prepared to take the task on themselves, so as not to make you feel bad or uncomfortable? My physical difficulties have always been put on the back burner, which is why I was so angry as a child.
But I believe a positive attitude, together with support and acceptance is exactly what we need to help us fit in and into the lives of others, with whom we share our lives with.
