Today, is National Cerebral Palsy Day. I have Cerebral Palsy, and I’m happy that I have the function that I do, that said, it took a lot of work. I had countless hours of Physical therapy and Occupational therapy.
When I was little a lot of people had doubts on if I was going to be able to walk, talk or even write. With help from therapists, and my mother, I am able to walk, talk and have decent handwriting. But that drive also had to come from me. When I was in high school, I started having problems taking my notes during class. I had to start typing my notes, and I had to start doing exercises to help improve my muscle tone. Now, things are better.
However, some children and adults aren’t so lucky to have the function that I have-they have to have a lot of help.
