I’ve mentioned cerebral palsy brings so many emotions. For the most part I am normally focused, strong and determined to work through my issues, but not today. I’m struggling because my leg is weak and I feel frustrated and angry.
It is only when you continually have to deal with something you realise you’re on your own. Premature ageing seems to be inevitable.
Developmental delays that accompany cerebral palsy, can keep some organs from developing at full capacity and levels of performance. Veins, heart, arteries and the pulmonary system, such as the lungs have to work harder to function and may also age prematurely.
