I'm 48 yrs old and I have Mild CP that effects my left leg and turns my feet inwards, I also have some learning difficulties.Like most of you I was teased at school and told that because of my CP i couldn't possibly do things that 'Normal' people do.

Well you can we just do it differently. I have run half marathons and climbed mountains even though it took me longer than some to do it. I have even studied at Oxford !

Don't give into the bullying, I know its painful but those who tease us are the ones with the so called disability. Be proud that you have come this far, be proud of your achievements however small and don't compare it to what others may achieve, you are specail.

hello, my name is lizzy and I am 16 years old. I have mild CP on my left side. I have a club foot and my left side is weaker, less coordinated, sometimes my arm and hand has very small spastic movements and I have less feeling and control of my left hand and fingers., I knew I wasn't "normal" but didn't know exactly what it was until last October. high school students ARE more accepting of this condition, but some can also be really harsh about it, not knowing what it is. she should let them know what she has, that's what I do; because I have some friends who like to joke a bit too much, so she needs to let them know when it's serious. I'm a senior in September, high school has been great. so don't worry, she'll be okay :)
for all of you reading this: does anybody know what job I can possibly get? I mean, a summer job for next year, have any of you with CP worked at this age? what difficulties did you have? thank you so much!

I also have a 4 year old with very mild cp although it effects her left side. She also has mild muscle weakness, runs slower & cannot do alot of things as well as others. She has just started preschool & I worry that she will experience the same issues your child has. You & I know how blessed we are to be dealing with mild cp as compared to the children that we see at dr visits pushing walkers or worse yet setting in wheelchairs, but to our kids it is a very real challenge, they are beautiful, smart,healthy(looking) kids so why can't they run, jump, ect like everyone else? I have to believe when the time comes & my baby girl comes home crying that I will have the strength to not get angry at the other children & that I will set her down,hold her in my arms & remind her of how special she is to this world, how everyone can do one thing really well while others may struggle & encourage her to do an activity she can excell at to gain self confidence. I wish you the best & I hope this helps :)

Raising a family with multiple children today can be challenging. Add to the mix a child with special needs, and parenting takes on a more daunting role. Coping with the many physical, emotional and social needs of the family unit demands a team effort.

I am 37 years old and just found out I have Ataxic Cerebral Palsy two years ago. My Doctor calls in Apraxia. I shake a little, worse when I pick up things. I have trouble with cordination, my hearing is somewhat bad and I had to wear braces when I was a kid. Still my parents didn;t test me. I was told have a learning disability. However, when I had trouble cutting a pineapple and learning things to slow I sensed that wasn't quite right. My niece has Cerebral Palsy. I started doing research. Then I got tested. The first results were normal. But I got a second opinion and sure enough I was dignosed with a mild case of CP. The problem is no one believes it or cares in my family and at my Job. They think I am normal and when they teach me things I don't quite get it so I find different ways of doing things. Yet, I get blamed for being a clutz or made to feel bad cutting my meat. Chopping, vegetables and fruit. I am in between the normal and the disabled. It makes me be creative and see things in different way then most people sometimes and I can solve problems faster then people who are adverage. I can do some things that a person without CP can't do too!

I have a maild case of cerebral palsy with the spastic in my arms and leg. And hand's. But i do have a 3 dergee black belt in kajukembo. It doe's it take lomg for my legs to spastic out afther working out for a little biit. I have a very heard time with school work. But I can play the paino and haave a 3 dergee black belt. It wears me out that i cant do the school work like i need to. And it upset me. I was told by a DR that it takes 10 times more work then people that dont have it . Is that trust?

This sounds like our story. My daughter is turning 14. She has mild/moderate CP, weakness on her left side. I had her in therapy for years. She has had botox injections, braces, tendon release surgery, the works. She is able to walk, run, ride a bike. Her biggest problem is her speech. People think she is deaf sometimes when they hear her speak. The kids at school, however, tease her badly. She also has a learning issue from the part of her brain that is affected, so being in the LD class doesn't help her situation with the other kids. She does have a few friends, but she comes home more often lately teary-eyed and depressed because she doesn't fit in. She makes excuses and dilly-dallies in the mornings so she doesn't have to deal with the kids on the bus---I end up having to drive her. My heart breaks for her, but I don't know what else to do to help her. She just says I don't understand. Have addressed some of this with the counselor, but not sure how much help this has been. My next step is probably a therapist, but with my insurance plan changing in January, I'm not sure how I can afford it...... I'm worried she may find alternative ways to cope that will make things even worse.....

I had the same experence myself. The one thing I wish I did when I was her age is to go to school activitied like the other kids. Mybe start with one with her close freind and then start doing more than one.

Hello. I read your post. I can't remember if I wrote to you before, but I wanted to let you know that my 18 year old daughter was recently diagnosed last year at 17. She has Mild Spastic CP affecting both legs and slightly in her hands. We were told since the age of 10 that it was a foot condition. This sadly wasted years that could of been used for physical therapy. It has been a struggle and even some family members can not believe that she has this or that this is what it is. I would love to talk more if you want. My e-mail is [email protected]. Best of luck to her and your family.
