Aging And CPI am 22 now and am a full time college student. I work, I go to the gym, lift weights, stay as active as I can. I was born 13 weeks early and diagnosed with CP. As I have gotten older it has really started to take a toll. I feel as though I am loosing mobility in my legs and the spasticity seems to be getting worse. The stiff joints and muscles is probably the worse. I still stay active and live a very normal like and I think staying physically active and mentally active has really helped me out. However, the pain is getting worse and it is starting to take a toll. Just wanted to know if anyone else my age is going through something similar? I know there is not a lot of research on CP and aging in young adults but it does appear to be a growing field of interest. I am scared I am going to end up in a wheel chair just by the way things seem to be going.
Thanks for the time and allowing me to vent
