Diagnosed w/cp as an adult #Lifewithmildcp
My name is Courtney. I'm currently 45. I have mild spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. Growing up I had all the therapies during school, though no one at the time knew what was going on with me! Yeah, odd no one knew I had cp till I was an adult and had to go for testing for SSDI because my pediatric files were lost or destroyed.
CP affects my legs and my hands.As a child I had to have a guard on my pencils to try to get me to grip it correctly. That failed. I also had hip dysplasia on the left side which resulted in it being pinned. I recently learned that was a cp thing. Go figure
