i have recently found out my condition is called c.p
i am absolutley devastated at finding out the condition i have been living with all 41 years of my life has a name and its something i never dreamt would relate to me. i have been suffering tiredness and trips more often over the past few years but put it done to me having a 'tight tendon in my ankle' never did i think it was an actual condition. i just thought it was 'something i was born with'. it explains so many things about my trouble with walking and my diagnosis of osteoarthritis in my hips and knees and the issues i have in my lower spine. i can't believe i have so much in common with people on here it is great to get it off my chest and talk to people who also have the same symptoms. it is something i have learned to live with but i am tripping over more and more and it is becoming increasing dangerous. i am falling over at work and have my duties changed to support this. (i am a teaching assistant for children with special educational needs) i dont know how i am supposed to cope with this or deal with it. it is written on my medical records that i have c.p but was never actually told,is this negligence? i take it neither was my mum told ,she told me everything about my health but sadly she passed away 20 years ago so i will never truly know .i am at my wits end right now and deeply shocked.
