Novelist seeks help. I am a novelist writing a book based on a close friend and colleague who had CP
Hello everyone. This may be an extremely annoying question, but as someone who does not have CP, I am trying to make sure that what I am writing is as correct as it can be, My friend could walk, although with difficulty, and he pushed himself. He never discussed the day to day difficulties he had, particular things he had to wear, how tiring it was to live with CP and work full time. He did a lot of yoga. He swam (I think) and tried to keep as fit as he could. He always wore hefty walking boots. But I know nothing about what speech therapy would have been like for him, although I know he had a lot. I have no idea how it feels to have the tight muscles that were evident in him. Is it being intrusive to ask you all, as a community, all with different experiences? I would be grateful. Remember, of you respond, I am ignorant. Many many thanks. Suds
