Living independently with Cerebral Palsy
I recently moved into a one bedroom bungalow having lived with my grandmother for a few years, people ask me how it is and I often say, "It's great", "I've missed it" or something to that effect. What I really want to say is "I'm bloody exhausted!!"...
I'm not naive, I was fully aware that moving somewhere by myself would be hard on my body but this hard? No. I mean, I can't even stand up straight these days where my leg muscles are tired, nevermind the fact that I look like I've been dragged through a bush backwards 1000 times.
What I don't understand is that in comparison to the two other instances where I've decided to live independently, my physical state seems so much worse. It scares me if I'm honest. More so because I haven't got a clue as to why this would be happening.
Maybe you guys could shed some light on this for me?
