Digging your heels in.

Physical Therapy, exercise and doing projects can really suck. Having CP makes the level of suckiness multiply by a factor of 10. Its slower, more deliberate and that much more difficult to do then someone without CP. You know everyone knows exercise can cause aches and pains. The most most frustrating thing is that for us it isn’t just the aches but the tendency for injury. Hip and back strain. Shoulder and elbow pain. You name it. Then you have to stop and heal up and start again. A lot of “dang it” moments.

The newest and best is arm tingling in my non-CP (left) arm. Being a nerd,  I Google and see nerve inflammation is the most likely culprit. Its this new unsettling symptom has been one of the triggers for pursuing new doctors and therapy. I know that it can be frustrating and you want give up and not work at it, but dig those defective heels in and keep at it.

I really have to thank my Dad for all he did while I was growing up to keep me active. Whether it was Whiffle ball, to throwing a football around, or him beating me up at basketball with that damn sky hook, he always kept me as active as possible. Thanks Dad!

As we get older, there is more onus on all of us to find ways to work on improving our physical issues and cognitive issues, while balancing limiting any significant injury so no set backs.




  1. A few days ago you asked for all the details of your beginning. I will share with you in an email and you can share as much or as little as you wish here.

    • That would really be great!
