Learning to be with you might mean learning how to handle how you move and or communicate.Every person who lives with a disability faces challenges in this world.As for taking responsibility for being with her, let me be clear here.Your friend is asking if someone would date her, not be her personal care aide.“Special” can carry a negative stigma that downplays the amazing attributes you possess: your strong will to prove others wrong about you, your sarcastic sense of humor, your amazing judgment of character, and your self-acceptance that to this day, I’m still trying to find in myself.We faced a lot of negativity from family and your care staff when we decided to take a chance and go on a date 10 years ago.
I’m here to tell you that while cerebral palsy is a part of me, it does not define me at all; I’m a perfectly normal college graduate who is just trying to make her way in society. I used to be very shy, but it has opened doors for me and given me the confidence I need to speak up and help others. When I was in the seventh grade, I wanted to be on the girls’ basketball team, and I am so thankful that my mom let me dream.I didn't think of messaging him afterwards but I was curious because no one has ever approached me in that manner... But, I was walking past him and took a glimpse- he had one crutch (by his right side). But the way he walked was quite strange and he was limping. I feel like physically disabled people might be a bit sensitive when it comes to break-ups because to them, just finding one person to accept them is difficult.So I searched it up- turns out its mild cerebral palsy. (well he didn't need to but would be nice to know). And I'm thinking- if this guy is not suited for me I might just befriend him or break up with him.So, a guy approached me on the street and gave me his number.He seemed really polite and quite shy; I just accepted and put his number down on my phone. Or does anyone have any experiences they'd like to share?
