Unfortunately, anyone with cerebral palsy will know how hard it is, not only to deal with the physical side of the condition, but the neurological side as well.
As a child, I had problems with feel and texture, but sadly there is little understanding, when it comes to neurological issues. I wasn’t believed and unless the issue is known about, the debate from others will always continue.
There is still much ignorance around cerebral palsy because people fail to understand and appreciate this is a neurological condition. It’s not just what they see with us physically. Considering our neurological issues form part of cerebral palsy, there seems to be little empathy.
Generally, people aren’t interested and don’t want to listen, but they will still be quick to comment if they thought we’d said something out of context, which differs from what they see as the norm. I have yet to understand fully my neurological issues.
I know that we’re neurologically, we’re completely re-wired, so they won’t always see or understand what we deal with. People don’t listen to what we say, they’re listening instead to what they want to hear and will often answer us, on what they think they’ve heard.
