... To be honest, your message here really depresses me. We work so hard with our boy that has CP diplegia, and I feel like maybe we shouldn't. If the outcome is like yours, then why should we work so hard if it will hurt his joints and he'll get arthritis anyway. It sucks that my child has CP. I've had a bad day, and I see him struggling, and I hate it. I needed to vent.... (7 replies)

... I am almost 30, and I have a mild case of CP. I can walk without crutches. My advice for your son is to do stretching exercises regularly. I did not do mine as much as I should have when I was his age. ... (7 replies)
... rate case of spastic dyplegia and walks on crutches. As a child he wore AFOs on his feet, but hasn't needed footbraces since he had his hamstrings lengthened two years ago. He gets along well and can walk a mile or two at a time. ... (7 replies)
... jeri L. —No advice, sorry :( But welcome... I see you aren't brand new to us but I don't think I've seen you post here. But I wanted to say that what you (and lovingangels are saying (the gene causing the braindamage) makes sense, and because of that your children have CP. Don't let anyone try to tell you that you are mistaken, they are your children after all. ... (8 replies)
... Good grief! I never said anything about a diagnosis being wrong or that any person's experiences/thoughts/or posts are wrong. I shared my experience that a person having CP due to some gene thing is new to me. I just said it's all new to me. I've lived a lot of years and way back when the cause of CP was lack of/too much oxygen. That was basically the only known cause... (8 replies)
... Hey Steffers... the bold line above is what I am talking about. I missed putting it in my other post. To me/b] it sounds like she is implying that the daughter of the original poster doesn't have CP and that the doctor is saying what she has is "LIKE" CP but I'm saying that we are not medical professionals and we can't sit here and tell people that their diagnosis is wrong,...

... The whole gene thing causing CP is new to me. I'd say the disabilities are so similar to CP that it's just called that.

I have mild CP too in all four limbs, I'm 37 years old and last year I had to get my neck fused with 16 screws from top to bottom which meant taking 6 months of work. ... (12 replies)
