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.

Facts on pandemic

It is hard enough being a person with cerebral palsy let alone having to deal with everyday challenges, now we are facing covid19 and being told to stay in our homes as a precaution and in some states only go out when absolutely necessary. I am floored at the panic and all restrictions as I sit in the er at 2:30 with my husband, I as precaution was not allowed back in the er with him which in return  raised anxiety for him cuz he feels more comfortable with having me listen to what doctors are saying. Poor guy. Anyway, it amazes me though at all the restrictions. It is important to take precaution and be wise then to not take heed at all. It is bothersome that not only are the proper authorities trying to containing this virus now there is rumors that are needed to be comforted with. In the reading material you will find a list of facts concerning this pandemic. The reading sets apart facts from rumors. I am thankful for technology so that we can still socialize with each other because socialization is important and healthy for every individual on all levels physically, emotional, mentally and spiritually.

Coping with fear and stress during pandemic

It is important that we keep ourselves grounded and focused at such a time as this. Everywhere we turn weather we are watching the news, listening to the radio, online it seems we are hearing about this historic event in time and the well known Corona virus. In today’s reading I want to focus on coping with stress and fears around the pandemic. It’s important for us to stick with our daily routine if at all possible to help with any fears and anxieties we can limit the time we are exposed to the media where it is flooded with the problems, focus on what’s most important to us as individuals our family, friends, caregivers etc. There is no need to panic and go overboard however, to be concerned and make wise decisions Ex: if u have to go to grocery store they are saying keep a 6 ft distant if possible away from others possibly go when it’s not so busy or find someone to go for u. Eating a well balance diet, exercising is an excellent outlet to remove the nervous energy and lean on our support system  our caregivers, family, friends. Pls do not believe everything u hear. Search  what u read and hear to make sure it’s true. Find things u enjoy to comfort your fears, exercising,coloring, reading a book etc. In tomorrow’s reading we will look at the facts of what’s true verses what’s not in hope to help anyone who may be fearful. As the saying goes this to shall pass. I hope u are enjoying the readings if u want me to touch on particular subject or topic pls let me know. Happy reading

Cp not just a disability

Cerebral palsy is more than just a disability. It is not contagious, it’s a lack of oxygen (before. during or after birth ) a person with cp may be limited in a variety of ways however they have the ability they need to live a successful life in society.  Our strength comes from our ability inside us that willingness and overcoming ability that drives us to where we want to go in life as we just want to be like everyone else. Cp does not define us as we are not the defined by the disease rather its who we are on the side that makes up who we are. So next time you see someone in a wheelchair or you see one who has a limp to their walk don’t be afraid to strike a conversation just say hi, ask questions and we will in return give truthful answers. 🙂 have a blessed day

like the eagle

So vibrant in her colors

She sorrows above

Through the sky

No worries she has at all

And she knows how to trust

The One who created her.

As she looks down to the ground

Things look so small

Yet looking from down below

Our problems look so tall.

be like the eagle

With not a care in the world

As she soars through

The open skies

And sings a song

She knows where she comes from.

Give me the grace

The wisdom to be like the eagle

Today, give me strength

I don’t understand so I

Can stand strong, tall and proud

Show me today just exactly who I am.

Give me mercy at all times and grace when in need

Grace gives a person strength to fly and shows

Them how strong they really are.

Look down with eagle eyes and see your

Problems are small, instead of looking up and

Seeing them as big and tall.

Go with confidence and fly

Like the eagle tall and proud

And trust as she does in the Creator

Who takes her cares and destroys them to the ground.

Be strong today and lean on Him

Trust that He will take care of you.  Why, you ask?

Because He loves you just as much

If not more than the eagle

Who flies high above.

You have wings like the eagle

Be like her today

Spread your wings and fly

As you do, you will see

Your troubles fall away and

You will have strength to see another day.

The end
