I have a EP friend who has CP. So what? They are people too and smart as regular folks.

So stop thinking that MI(mental Iliness) is CP. It's not. Mental Illiness is something wrong with your brain. CP is having difficulty with words. I don't mean to offend anyone with CP or people with metal lliness.

I'm just telling the difference.

I agree. CP is an injury to [some part of] the brain. I don't know what causes it or what part of the brain is injured. But Mental illness is a totally different thing. MI is an illness, CP is a condition. I have a friend with CP, who is brilliant. His motor functions are a little erratic, but his mind isn't.<br />
