Balancing life with cerebral palsy can be a difficult task. In fact, there were many days as a teenager where I just wanted to go under a rock and start crying because it was so overwhelming. There are some days where I still feel that way.
I feel as if being a writer and an advocate for cerebral palsy allows me to forget about all the negative things about cerebral palsy. Writing has helped me immensely over the years I don’t know what I would do if it weren’t for my gift to writing in inspiring others.
I feel like when you have a disability balancing life is very important because our schedules are so hectic and busy at times between doctors appointments and physical therapy and going to a specialist at times I often wonder if I ever have time to breathe. The key to balancing the good life when it comes to having a disability is finding something you love to do to pass the time like for example when I’m not doing my homework for my online college I continually seek ways to inspire others and ideas to stimulate my mind
