Facts on cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is a childhood disease that is common in children, but, it is a disease that is so misunderstood. C.P. is a childhood disease that effects motor skills, muscle tone and a variety of muscle groups in the body all due to brain damage. It simply is a lack of oxygen at birth, shortly before birth, during or sometimes shortly after birth. There is different types of c.p. approximately 40% of the population with cerebral palsy are born with hemoplegia type.  It is not contagious simply put its caused from brain damage. It takes a cp individual to work 3 times harder than a abled body individual as it takes some of us longer to get where we want to go and we have, in some cases, to make our muscles move which in return takes up energy. But intellectual we are like everyone else. We have bubbly personalities, outgoing, wanting to be like everyone else just want to fit in. If you have any questions pls ask away.

Author: My cerebral palsy life

I became a writer in 2010, then I pursued an education in health care administration. Working to get a medical coding certificate to add to my professional titles. I and my husband have 2 adult children, 2 dogs. I was a single mother of two for 18 years. I have personal experience in health care as a cna, mental health and raising children with developmental disabilities. I am an advocate for the disabled as I was born with cerebral palsy and have learned to overcome challenges in life. My motto is life lessons are to be teachable, to educate, share our skills and learn to understand others that we encounter on life's journey.
