All of my life people being look at me liked I am so different this is down to four things, the first thing is I have a physical disability which is Cerebral Palsy and I am in a Power Chair to, down to not having good speech I use a Lighterwriter. what I want people to understand my mind work. My hands jump around so I am type this up with my big toe.

    Hello Barry and welcome
    It is great to meet you. Thanks for sharing a little of your life.
    You are the second person I have met who types with their toe, I had a good friend with mobius syndrome. I have enough trouble using two fingers :)
