A close friend of mine gave me this thought, which I want to share with you. Imagine how difficult it would be to run backwards, that would be the same for people like myself with Cerebral Palsy trying to move forward. The more we try and concentrate, the slower our brains work.
My brain periodically switches off like a light bulb, then I need to rest. Apart from the physical signs associated with Cerebral Palsy, to the untrained eye we think as everyone else does, but what we deal with is very different.
We are completely ‘cross-wired’ emotionally and physically, but because of the lack of research on adult Cerebral Palsy, there isn’t a lot of information out there. In my own case, through various discussions with my Neurologist, he confirms that to compensate for the injury my brain is cross-wired.
Although it must be frustrating for others who must work around our limitations, sadly it will always be harder for us.
