In Reply to: My Friend Has Mild CP & I Need Some Info... posted by Dianne on October 12, 2000 at 06:30:43:
: A friend of mine has Mild CP...he knows nothing about
: it because his parents never told him any of the details. He remembers horse back riding lessons as a child to strengthen his legs, but remembers little else about his childhood with relation to the CP. He is 18 years old, does not have a drivers license or a job yet, is shy to the point of silence, walks with a "bounce" in his step, gets extremely "hyper" sometimes and then goes really "low" (depressed)....and so much more. Can someone please let us know if these are actual CP stresses...or maybe something else???? Any help would be appreciated.
Living with cerebral palsy is sometimes stressful. Everyone, even "typical" people can have things going on like your friend does. The only thing that I can suggest is that your friend should talk to a counselor, etc., so that he can feel better.
