It’s natural to feel negative things from time to time. Know that you are not alone in your feelings. Surround yourself with people who love you, who will remind you of all the amazing things about you. Do something nice for yourself just because. Watch your favorite movie. Read your favorite book. Eat your favorite food. Life IS difficult. And it’s also awesome. It’s normal to experience both extremes and everything in between. I have CP as well, and I’m always here if you need to talk.
Hey, thank you for replying to that text post and being really nice about it, I don't know it just makes me feel awful that other people have it so much worse than I do
Everybody has rough days. No matter who they are. Able-bodied or not. More involved CP or not. Suffering and severity of disability are not mutually exclusive. Honestly, we all have struggles. Conversely, though, we all have awesome days, too! Based on your post, I suppose you could say that I’m one of those people who is technically physically “worse off” than you. That said, using crutches to walk short distances and a wheelchair the rest of the time is the only life I know, and I’m happy with it.
I hope it’s okay to offer a different perspective.
It’s totally okay to have down days. Don’t make it worse for yourself by feeling guilty on top of it. Especially when a lot of us who have it “worse” are used to our lives as they are. We have grown up adapting. We are really okay.
And it’s really okay for you to feel however you feel.
