Hi so I’m the guy with cerebral palsy (asymmetric diaplegic spasticity) and it’s mild but I just wanna say that although there are different severities of cerebral palsy we’re all in the same boat and if u put ur head to it u can do pretty much anything and people in ur life that care about u will support u and just know that things will get difficult it will get dark but hope always wins in the end 

Live long and prosper

    Hi @john_hunter, welcome to the community!

    I have mild CP affecting my legs and left side. You might find the Cerebral Palsy discussions particularly interesting. Or you can have a chat in our coffee lounge with other members.
