Overcoming people’s perceptions of me is harder than living with Cerebral Palsy– that’s what I keep learning
It’s 7 : 38 PM on day 699 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself scrambled eggs, sausage and bread for breakfast, drink coffee by myself prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, prepare and publish my Kid of the Week feature, work, feed myself tomato, carrot and chicken for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Today I was doing something when I suddenly had a flashback of our neighbor’s visit she had come to drop off my brother’s birthday gift and just as she was about to leave she said I’ll keep you all in my prayers it’s a busy time for matriculants (my sister), teachers (my mother)…. and you (me) my beautiful flower the way she paused before she mentioned something about me really irritated me it’s like she had to think of something and include me in the conversation so as not to be rude I don’t get why people don’t ask what I’m doing instead of assuming I do nothing I don’t tell people all the stuff I do because I don’t want to show off but I would if they asked. Have you found that overcoming people’s perception of you is harder than anything else you are facing?
