    Cerebral Palsy Is Not Sexy.

    One of my new fans seems to think that cerebral palsy is sexy. Well, having my nerve endings ruined was not sexy. Nor was having both hips dislocate twice each. Having iron rods wired to my spine three times is an experience I would rather forget. (Ever been on morphine and...

    I am 28 years old. In recent years I have been

    trying to figure out how to better myself physically to overcome some of the limitations, pain and spasms that come with having this disability. I work hard every day to stretch, work out and eat right. Anyone else working toward a goal to better their situation with CP?

    I have a love/hate relationship with my

    disability. However, I think I am one of the few that actually appreciates my experiences with a disability for the majority of the time. I like being different.
