    Damn so I'm short, I'm 5'0/ 5'1 whatever in that area.

    I never thought of it that way, I've had 1 surgery on my leg.

    Re: Hmmm...short?

    I belive it has to do with how tight your tone is and how many surgeries you had. For out of my family i am the tallest and i have spastic diapegia cp. I'm 6'5 and 29 years old. While my gf michelle is 21 years old and has spastic quad cp and is the shortest in her family at 4'8. all her siblings even her twin are around 5'5 to 5'8. so it all depends.

    Re: Hmmm...short?

    Yes, I am! I am 14 and at 4 feet 11 inches, don't even compare with friends, let alone my family! The docs say I'm done growing (I agree, I've been like this for almost 5 years!)...

    I don't mind being short, except when my family teases me about it.

    If you hit 18 and you are still 4-11, then you can say you're done growing. Doctors are clueless some of the time. My doctor always asks me what I need, I never ask him... I am older than he is too

    you stop growing after you have your period for 2 years. that's what i've heard.

    ladyrmx: I agree...it's been 3 + years now...I'm done growing!

    musicmaker: I see your point. However, I really don't think I'll grow anymore.

    Maybe my point should only be for boys. I was over 6 feet at 14
