Although this blog has taken me a while to write it it’s been far from easy. I know the Cerebral Cortex is affected and that the part of my brain that deals with feelings is developed.
I now recognise an issue that I have been struggling with for many years. I also know that the symptoms that affect me, may not affect other people with Cerebral Palsy. From the information I have from my Neurologist, the Cerebral Cortex that deals with any kind of feelings is affected. I don’t have the ability to feel.
It’s also one of the reasons why I missed all of my milestones. I think this also infringes on intimacy and other aspects of my life too. It would be interesting to know whether there is anyone else out there who struggles with the same kind of issues.
I have come across one other person with Cerebral Palsy who also struggles with what I struggle with, but I am not aware of anyone else. It would be helpful to hear from more people who have perhaps experienced something similar.
