Hi, my name is Chloe!

I am a teenager living with shunt corrected hydrocephalus but things have cropped up the past that have led to me now having a slight weakness on my right side. I just want to know if anyone else has this condition and might be to pass on inofrmation on how you have coped with hydrocephalus.

    Hi there Chloe. I do not have hydrocephalus but I have a weakness (right sided hemiparesis) that is a form of cerebral palsy. Hope you can find some useful answers! :)

    Hi, and yes that has answered a few thou I have had. How do you cope with a weakness on the right side. The only way I can say that I have managed to cope and move on would be that I have a very supportive family and a nother who doesn't and wouldn't let my needs be an excuse. She has included me with everything.

    I know a few people with cerebal palsy and was just wondering if you use a wheelchair or any other sorts of equipment to help you with day to day life.

    Thanks
