It's very similar to this group but we do have some poems and essays and things posted about living with CP that some of our members have written.

Hi, I'm new. My name's Joy. I'm 24 and have chronically dislocating kneecaps. That's the short version. extended versionCollapse ) While I still work the knees a lot with pt exercises, I had to give in to the dr's suggestion of permanent handicapped parking. I've also gained about 30lbs in the past two years because the injuries have made it extremely difficult to work out. But I finally got an AbLounge a few mos ago which allows me to do crunches without being on the floor or hurting my back or neck.

One of my customers also pointed me to this site, and it's GREAT! Accessories for crutches and cane, eating, writing, and bathing devices, tips for travelers, etc. Check out BrokenBeauties.com : )

i hate normal people [19 Aug 2004|08:36pm]
[ mood | scared ]

All my life normal people have used, abused and discarded me simply because they could

Today is no exception.

My PCA who is SUPPOSED come to my house two days week for three hours a day but he NEVER comes when he is supposed to, only comes when he happens to be in the area and gives
me no warning. HE takes me to his girlfriend's house and leaves me there when he is read y, which is up to two hours

He does not like me and treats me like he is doing a favor just by doing his job.

He only takes me to the places that HE wants to take me and only sometimes take me where I want to go.

He "borrowed" $2 from me and said he would payu me back when I he got change but he never did.

He makes me sign for six hours even if he only is out for an hour.

ANd worse comes to worse, after all this, he asked me to put RAM in his computer for him.

I need a hug. Why do people are me.

[ mood | curious ]

Answer this questions and you'll be my favorite cripple EVER:)

Does anyone know how to find hand controls for a car?
Does anybody know how spastic you have to be to be unallowed to drive?
If an EEG comes back that exstreamly painful headaches be and most likely are a very mild form of siezures , will they let me drive?

ummmm [05 Jun 2004|07:32pm]
I haven't written in any kind of Lj of a long time because I've made some awful mistakes and I don't want to hurt anybody else any more. But I have had real selfesteem issues dealing with my CP lately and kind of think it would help to them down and get feedback....

I have always had a weird self-deprecating feeling about the way me knees turn in and often knock together. But nobody has ever made fun of that aspect of my disability until recently and really got me. I had a pool party yesterday and I invited who’d never seen me outside of school and the zoo (which means she’d never seen me walk before) and when I came out of the house she just randomly started laughing. I asked her what was so funny and she said. “Your legs are sticks and your knees are red form being banged together.” I was so embarrassed that I almost went back inside but I couldn’t because it was my party. Then today I went to get my eyebrows done and my shirt rode up in the front exposing my stomach and the lady doing my eyes pitch my stomach and joked,” I think you should move that down to your skinny little legs.” I thought I was going to cry I felt so ugly. I know that in reality I’m 5 lbs underweight and that I can’t help the whole leg thing but I hate it. Sometimes I just wish I was invisible.

Hi my name is Bethan or as some people call me Kee.

I'm 19 years old and I come from Wrexham in North Wales, UK. 

At the moment I'm studying Media studies A-level in six-form college. But who knows what I'll do in the future. Hopefully find a job with loads of money.

I suffer with Cerebral Palsy but I don't let it get me down. I try do do as much with my life as i possibly can.

As I suffer with Cerebral Palsy I have created a UK based community for it. </font></strong></a></strong></font></a>cp_uk  Please take a look it and post/join if you wish.

I hope to get to know more people with disabilities just like me. Everyone is welcome to add my journal as well as my community.

What are you guys doing for Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa whatever holiday you celebrate for winter?

And also, those of you using crutches... how do you handle ice? this is my first winter when I think it will be really icy and I'm on crutches.

[ mood | annoyed ]

I'm really effing spastic right now. I'm so tired of carrying myself around on my crutches. I walk down the road and I'm out of breath. It's about time for another surgery, but I really don't wanna do it. I HATE being in a wheelchair, and if I get a surgery, I'll be in one for three months with a cast and like 4 more with out one. It's bullshit. I need to get it done, but I keep asking myself if it's worth just to do it again in later years....

Wheelchair woes [07 Sep 2003|02:56pm]


Okay, so it is now not about not being able to run any more. Or walk. Or anything. But I can't even get around with this darn wheelchair! I just *finally* got a wheelchair but it is a manual one and I just simply... can't handle it right now. It is driving me crazy, it was way better before I had one and I just knew that I couldn't get around, but now it is annoying, frustrating and I hate this situattion right now.

Walker for highschool? [22 Aug 2003|09:02am]
I went to the highschool yesterday , and walked around to check out wear my classes were.... as did the whole freshman class. Everyone thinks I'm totally insane , but I honestly think it might actually be easier if I skip the wheelchair and just use my walker to get around.
For the following reasons:
1.) I won't have to push up all the weird- shaped ramps.
2.) I'll be able to reach the locker standing up.
3.) I can move through crowds faster, I tend to walk faster then I roll, unless I'm pushed or in a big place (i.e. the mall, the city, a zoo, a concert)
4.) I won't to ask people to help as much, I am kind of shy about that.

I used my chair in Middle school because it was 4 floors, 5 counting the floor I couldn't even get to. And that building was super old , I was the first handicap to attend school there, there is a junoir with MS but she went to Powell (the other/newer Jr. High). So anyway there no elevators only lifts that my walker to tall for , one ramp and and one cargo-mover I had to ust to get to the health room. So using my chair was the obvious choice.

I really think my walker is just as obvious this year it'll be hard to use the chairin more then one occaisson that I noticed. My dad said , the highschool is even bigger then RMS and if I couldn't handle that I can't handle the highschool. I don't think that's true , this school is a LOT more accessiable and my walker will work. Why don't you tell me what you think? I could use some advice!
