    Hi @Lizzie_the_panda
    Great to meet you! 
    My Cerebral palsy affects almost everything I do! I'm sure lots of other people would feel the same way. Did your diagnosis come as a surprise? Is there anything I can help you with?

    Hi @Lizzie_the_panda and welcome to the community! I have triaplegic spastic cerebral palsy that affects most of my body (with my right arm having the most function). It impacts on every I do. I currently am at university and know that certain aspects of this has been harder because of my CP. Luckily technology is pretty good these days! Let me know if there is anything that I can do :)
