Having a physical disability can be hard sometimes but you can explain to people how to help you or you know what works for you.  A disability that can be seen you are able to teach others and also bring awareness to it.  But a mental illness is not that easy to explain.  Here is a reason why I think it’s harder to tell others about mental if you have depression or some kind of mental illness;  I think people think it’s all in someone’s head that you have depression but as I read more about mental health is not just in their hands.   Sometimes it is something that they can’t control or even something from their past that has left hurt that they don’t think they feel they can let go of.  Or maybe that is just a disability.   This article about someone who is sacred to tell her story just because others don’t see that having a mental illness is a disability.  https://themighty.com/2017/05/scared-my-mental-illness-makes-me-hard-to-love/.
This is one reason I want to help people who feel like they can’t talk about mental health.

Kinds of Cerebral palsy.

I think this article is awesome,  it gives decisions of all the difference kinds of CP because there are so many ways that CP, its not one type but even knowing what kind someone has it can every from person to person.   I have Ataxia is the least common form of cerebral palsy. Ataxia means ‘without order’ or ‘incoordination’.  It is not a common type which can be hard sometimes;  when I need to tell people about it,  or I just say I have the crazy kind!

‘Ataxia is the least common form of cerebral palsy. Ataxia means ‘without order’ or ‘incoordination’ Ataxic movements are characterised by clumsiness, imprecision, or instability. Movements are not smooth and may appear disorganised or jerky. The incoordination seen with ataxia occurs when a person attempts to perform voluntary movements such as walking or picking up objects. Ataxia causes an interruption of muscle control in the arms and legs, resulting in a lack of balance and coordination.’

My cp hurts/hard day

My CP can be so tight and in doing excise or anything else can be so hard, but I keep going yesterday was an tighter day.   I had to go to project walk and nominally it helps.   But not yesterday,  I have so much that I’m excited for that it makes me tighter then normal.  CP is not the same every day well least mine isn’t,  that is what is the hard part of my cerebral palsy.  But it’s what I have to deal with to keep moving forward, all that to say there are many people who have it hard, and may not think they could be supported but you are; your journey may be hard but you are not alone!   Don’t hide you!

ever had one of those weeks where everything goes wrong?  That was my week about two weeks, it seemed like everything, that makes my little easier was not working it was hard,  I couldn’t anything!   I was getting annoyed with my  disability and realizing that I may not get a new intellikeys  keyboard which is how I can do everything that I love working, writing/helping others it was all coming down.  I still don’t have a new keyboard,  but I need to keep busy I need to feel like I can do stuff .  When you have a disability that there are only a few things that you can do without  help, it’s important to find a way to be as independent. Especially  if you need help with everything else.  I don’t like when I  cant do anything.  I try to see the good in each day but the last two weeks I couldn’t.  I was feeling down and it wasn’t like me to want to give up  trying to work or  see if something good could happen that is not me!   I am back.    I’m still trying to get a new keyboard and  honestly it doesn’t look like it will be  an easy fix  but I won’t give up.*

There are so many different kinds of disabilities some we don’t even think of as a disability. Look up the word disability, ”Disability is an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, intellectual, mental, sensory, developmental, or some combination of these that results in restrictions on an individual’s ability to participate in what is considered “normal” in their everyday society.” But is anyone exactly the same? No,we all have a difference and that to me is a disability. But people who are so called normal they aren’t, being normal to me means we would all be exactly the same but we are different from each other which is amazing.  So think about this; why when people see someone who has a visible difference why are they named disabled why isn’t everyone? I think it’s because people who are “disabled” need more help daily.   I agree that does make sense but don’t you sometimes need a little more help?  I have Cerebral palsy, Athetoid, Main article: Athetoid cerebral palsy Athetoid cerebral palsy or dyskinetic cerebral palsy is mixed muscle tone — hypertonia and hypotonia mixed with involuntary motions. People with dyskinetic CP have trouble holding themselves in an upright, steady position for sitting or walking, and often show involuntary motions. For some people with dyskinetic CP, it takes a lot of work and concentration to get their hand to a certain spot (like scratching their nose or reaching for a cup). Because of their mixed tone and trouble keeping a position, they may not be able to hold onto objects, especially small ones requiring fine motor control (such as a toothbrush or pencil). About 10% of individuals with CP are classified as dyskinetic CP but some have mixed forms with spasticity and dyskinesia. The damage occurs to the extrapyramidal motor system and/or pyramidal tract and to the basal ganglia. In newborn infants, high bilirubin levels in the blood, if left untreated, can lead to brain damage in the basal ganglia (kernicterus), which can lead to dyskinetic cerebral palsy.[citation needed.)”‘   This is one thing which makes me different.   What makes you different from anyone else?
