My Dating and relationships
Having relationships and sex when you have Cerebral Palsy
Who I am and what we will be talking about
Hi my name is Barry Smith and I am 38 years old from Irvine in Scotland. When I where born anyone found out, I have Cerebral Palsy what is a physical disability. Down to this I am in a power chair and I use a Lightwriter to so no matter who you are, you can understand what I am saying, what is mean part of the relationship when you first meet someone.
What happen next
If you think you liked someone you might asked them out on a date and if you both get on, you might both start a relationship and started thinking about having sex. The first person who I full in loved with they also had Cerebral Palsy liked me, we just had lots of hugs and kiss, down to support wasn’t in plan for us. Then the next relationship I had it was with someone who couldn’t feel her, own legs. Down to them couldn’t move she from her bum haft down or no feelings in these bites to. Down to me was always to come out of my power chair and was able to move along on my bum, sometime I would sit on her nap with my slippers on we would hugs, at first it was nice. Then we got a place together we had two sight bed this was down to we both had different support need, we break up.
After years being me myself
I got chat to a man online we meet but he didn’t tell me the truth. We were together for 7 years. Now I am single and hoping one day I will find love.
