Cp Boy

I was born with severe Cerebral Palsy. I can't eat, walk, TALK, go to the bathroom or even travel by myself. I am dependent on my mom and dad for everything. I don't talk much. I can sort of talk but its hard for people to understand it. My arms wave around so much that they strap them to my wheelchair. I understand that I will be dependent upon my parents or siblings or (Maybe) a spouse or a nursing home staff for the rest of my life. I am afraid of being alone forever.

So please if you were moved by this story remember that we aren't retards who just sit in wheelchairs and drool. I do have feelings and am not retarded (I have the highest tested IQ in my extended family!

Sweetie, I sympathize greatly with your situation, and as a parent I can also sympathize with them. I can't begin to imagine what life is like for any of you. However, regarding my comment on your smoking story, this still doesn't explain your "goal" to me. Why do something that only harms your health more?

On another note, I'm not sure if you read or enjoy reading, but if so I recommend the book "Out of my Mind"...it's about a young girl with CP.

Smoking is a calming thing. It is the one dependable thing in my life. I figure I might as well see if it can be done. And it wouldn't affect anything about me except my lungs, which are the only part of my body that can operate independently anyway. So why not screw them up too. Its not like it can affect anything else accept them. Besides the sooner I die the sooner I go someplace else where I don't have elderly women talking to my mother like I'm not there and a child with water on the brain instead of a intelligent nineteen year old adult!
