I changed provider for the blog and life has got in the way.  Using some of the older posts and certainly cerebral palsy has played a lot in my life. And it will for the rest of it.  Many people think that it is some kind of disease that is contagious. It is not possible to catch brain damage. I talk about it in Life with Diplegic Mixed Cerebral Palsy Although my case is fairly mild there are so many different aspects of my life that it dictates long term decisions.

  You're 20 years old and in some respects. You have the rest of the world and your life ahead! You have had a lot of physiotherapy sessions all through your childhood. It stops as soon as you become an adult. What is next? That is the question. You don’t know what you’re going to do next and how you are going to do to keep yourself as agile and fit as possible? All your life had to be split between going to physio sessions and school. Now that’s all over you’re meant to get on with your life on your own. You are half excited and half scared witless. You know that physio has stopped. It means it's up to you to do the work no one nagging at you to do your exercises. All you want to do is be normal! What do you want to tackle first? Work? Life in general? Physio? Work This is going to be a choice of options for what you can do physically, or not. Yes, that is the reality of the world. It's not what you want to hear.
