My life’s been up and down dealing with Cerebral Palsy over the years. Dealing with Cerebral Palsy meant that I would always have to work through different problems in my life; pertaining to my neurological, emotional and physical issues.
As others, will have experienced too, as a terminal illness gets progressively worse you’re left with so many thoughts and uncertainties. I still have those uncertainties because of this one unresolved issue. Having lost one parent already and the other now terminally ill, brings more thoughts for me on what I have had to deal with, all these years growing up with Cerebral Palsy.
Yesterday my thoughts went straight to what I still have to deal with and how I feel about it all. I have always maintained and still maintain we need support and empathy from family members to help us deal with what we have to deal with. I struggled with all of it.
It’s so important to be able to talk about what we deal with, with our parents; as a family. I have had to support myself over the years trying to find some sort of level of acceptance on my Cerebral Palsy. Now it really is a scary thought knowing that I may never be able to talk this one out.
With one of my parent’s still around, I always thought there may be a chance or opportunity for me to talk about my Cerebral Palsy and how it was for me growing up. I’m not giving up on that.
