Living life with cerebral palsy

Hi! I was born with moderate spastic right side hemiplegic cerebral palsy. I wore a leg brace for eight years until my heel cord legnthening/tendon transfer operation in 2002. In 2004, I was offered a tendon transfer for my arm, but I opted out for many reasons. I went to occupational and physical therapy all through my childhood. I am now eighteen, and I feel like I am losing what little sensation in my arm and leg, that I already have, especially in my right arm. Is this really happening, or am I more aware of the condition now that I am older? Has this happened to anyone else with CP?
