Quotes...

I like love quotes. Especially when they describe exactly what you are feeling, and can be really inspirational. Some of my favourites would be-

fall down seven get up eight
this is probably because I spend half my time on the floor when I'm walking. Balance isn't one of my strengths, but that doesn't mean I can't just get back up with help from my amazing friends and start the challenge of getting to the other side of the swam of bees which is meant to be my school corridor. Or getting up those mountains that other people call stairs. Just take each day as it comes and fight the challenges to get you to another day because no challenge is too big if you take it one step at a time.

whether you think you can or can't, your probably right
I believe that the only disability in life is a bad attitude or been pessimistic all the time. We all have those times in our lives when being positive is the last thing you feel like doing. However there will always somebody out th…

Don't you just love it when your head hits the pillow and you could sleep for years?

Well that's what I was like last night. Yesterday I went to an aqua festival with school. It was loads of fun, but very tiring. By the time we had go to the coach it was peaceful. Everybody was ready for a nice rest.

It was the 3rd race when I took a turn for the worst. I had 7 races. As I lined up ready to get in the pool I could feel my left leg just getting tighter the more I stood and my body aching. (probably because of the shock of the race before). I wasn't going to let it get the better of me and just did the race anyway.

However once I had finished, (bringing up the rear in joint last), my legs froze as a stood on the bottom. Trying to figure out the easiest possible way to get out. Once I was out with the help of friend it seemed the whole room had become an ice rink, all wet and not making getting back to the bench the easy task.

Overall it was a great and I had loads of fun swimming (and missing a maths exam in the process). The teacher wouldn't let me do …

World cerebral palsy day

Mixed emotions- today is special and meaning full. I just which I could have done more. People come up to me and say "aww are you ok, I feel really sorry" but why I would not change my condition for the world. Less pain would always be nice, but I know things could be ten time worse. There will always be somebody out there who is worse off then you so why is it a big deal.

I am proud to have cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy isn't just who I am or just a label which I have just had to learn to cope with. Cerebral palsy has influenced me and has made me a stronger person and also given me a better outlook on life. Without cerebral palsy I probably wouldn't have achieved half thing in my life which I have. I know that sounds a bit stupid, but its true. When people look at you and say "ohh no you couldn't possible manage to do that" that's when I prove them wrong. A quote they use in school a lot would be

Hi, hey & hello...

This my first post as I enter the hopefully wonderful world of blogging. Blogging has always been one of those things I have wanted to get round to doing but before now other things have taken its place. The aim of blogging is to express my views and to use it as a hobby which can be built up over time. Been a student with mild cerebral palsy has its challenges and extra hurdles but can be reward and I wouldn't change it for the world. (Good job really because I'm stuck with it)
Hi, I'm Chloe!
I have mild cerebral palsy which affects the left side of my body. I was diagnosed with it when I was in year 2. I wore a splint on my left leg during the day up until I was in year 6. I then changed to orthotic in my shoes and a night splint and this is still how it is at the moment. Over the years I have had Botox injections every 6 months for a few years and there was talk about serial casting but it never happened. I was born 8 weeks early and was in intensive care for a long ti…
