Smile Others like myself

Hello! I am new to the board and I am curious to see if there are other people like myself. I am 36 years old and, of course, have cerebral palsy. I have a moderate case which was originally classified as quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy due to the fact that all four limbs have been affected to some degree. With years of physical therapy and several operations I am able to walk but use crutches most of the time due to my balance. My speech was not at all affected nor was my mental abilities. I have lived a normal life: I got my drivers license I was 16, I graduated college with a bachelors degree, and have been a full-time teacher (of a regular general education class) for 13 years now. Is there anybody else out there that is similar to my situation?

Re: Others like myself

Hi! I'm 37 and I have the spastic diplegia version. At home I hold onto furniture to walk. When I am out and not nervous I walk with two canes. If I know people are watching me and I am nervous I hold onto another person's arm to get around in public. I have just gone through physical therapy to walk with one cane. I can only do that if I am in a really low pressure situation. Anyway, I have my license too although I don't use it because I am quite scared of driving. I have a bachelor's degree also. My speech is normal and everything else that is not walking. Don't know if you are still looking for replies, but if you are, hello!
