I have written a blog about my journey with cerebral palsy and how I found out that is what I’d been struggling with up to the age of 46, when I got my diagnosis.
Rather late in the day. I also talk about the fact that it wasn’t a freak of nature that caused me to have cerebral palsy, but a mistake by the consultant and nursing staff leaving my mother for too long in the delivery room.
My life in the way it has happened would never have been any different. If you believe in things happen for a reason, my writing is the reason. The process where you grieve for the loss of something you don’t have, as a consequence of something that has happened to you is what I feel I am doing.
I was born with physical, mental and emotional issues. Never being able to share my thoughts growing up, is another loss. There are questions I will never have the answers for. The only answers I will have are those I answer for myself in my head.
