Teenage Years and CP

By |September 30th, 2015|Mental, Physical|8 Comments

This post will be sort of a tie in to my previous and rather popular post Early Childhood and CP. This one as you may have guessed from the title will revolve around my teenage years, and how the CP affected me during those already turbulent times.

A Thank You to a Physio

By |September 20th, 2015|Physical|0 Comments

I don’t do well with change and yesterday was a big change for me. I had a seating appointment to make adjustments to my chairs, but it was also my last official appointment with the physiotherapist that has worked with me as long as I can remember. I didn’t show it when we were saying […]

The World Was Not Made For Me – CP and Accessibility

By |September 6th, 2015|Physical|0 Comments

When you have a physical limitation, to get through a day requires so much awareness to what is around you. How long will it take to get to meetings? Whether you can enter a building in the front. Maybe you have go through the only assessable door to end up on the opposite end the […]

Cerebral Palsy and Pain

By |September 2nd, 2015|Physical|7 Comments

Pain. We all feel it. The only difference is how much we feel. That’s why doctors invented the pain scale. It’s a way to measure pain when patients can’t describe it. A ten is the absolute worst pain you’ve ever felt. On the opposite end of the scale a one indicates hardly any pain at […]

Cerebral Palsy and Sexuality

By |August 24th, 2015|Physical|8 Comments

Sex. A topic that invoke feelings and thoughts of happiness and sadness, fear and joy, insecurity and intimacy to name a few, whether they have CP or not. But when you have CP it can complicate matters a little, both physically and emotionally. And while I have been somewhat reluctant to write about this, I think it […]

Cerebral Palsy and Help from Others

By |July 25th, 2015|Physical|0 Comments

I like to think of myself as a pretty self-sufficient person, but the truth is I’m not. Place me in an environment that’s inaccessible (stairs, tiny doorways, small bathroom, etc.) and I’m pretty much helpless. This is where the kindness of others comes in and saves the day. To better illustrate what I mean I’m […]

5 Late Effects of Cerebral Palsy

By |January 25th, 2015|Physical|73 Comments

Living with CP now a days is usually pretty okay, I am happy with who I am, and I feel I get to use the CP and the experiences it has given me, to help people, especially on this website. I will admit however that I am noticing physically that I´ve lived with this condition […]

5 Small Things That Make A Big Difference

By |January 20th, 2015|Mental, Physical|22 Comments

I´m not one to sweat the small stuff. I´ve always tried to not care about the small things and to not let them get me down. Yet, when I look back at things that hurt me the most in regards to the CP, it was always the small things, that perhaps people didn’t think mattered […]

CP: Physically Speaking – Surgeries and Experiences

By |January 17th, 2015|Physical|9 Comments

Cerebral Palsy has made its presence known physically (and mentally) since I was born. Whilst my mind has gotten its fair share of challenges due to the CP, so is also the case with my body. The physical aspects of CP are often the most talked about, online, by doctors, other healthcare professionals and at […]

Early Childhood and CP

By |August 7th, 2014|Mental, Parenting, Physical|17 Comments

One of the first times I understood I was different was in kindergarten, I had to be wheeled around if we were going on excursions, whereas the other kids would walk. I understood I was different, but I don’t think I was bothered by it. It was just widely accepted that, that was the way […]
