Last week, I had a post discussing my grievances, and I got a response I didn't take well at all. Then I looked at it differently. The comment was probably meant for good. We can't interpret words, when we don't know the intent. I don't know how many of you are new readers, so I will give a reintroduction. I've avoided doing this because I realized I would open up the one wound I never really like to discuss. I'm ripping off the band-aid. I'm Regine. I'm 33. And I have Cerebral Palsy. I typed that without tears. I was told it doesn't get worse as I get older, with age though comes inconvenience. And most humans hate that word. Inconvenience brings a necessity of waiting, something I may be used to, but don't like much. You don't fix CP. The only thing you control is your mind's decision to redirect your thoughts, actions and reactions. And it requires those traits of which are lacking.   I say this in truthful acceptance. I have to make a choice to look at things in another way.
Thank you for reading, and giving feedback. It's the way we learn.


  1. Having positive thoughts helps in every difficult situation. I'm learning this myself. : )


  2. Regine, I am sorry that you have CP because I know that it makes life quite challenging. I also know that it took courage for you to once again allow yourself to be vulnerable to hurting once again. You are more than welcome to e-mail me if there is a need. The e-mail address is listed on my profile page at the blog.

  3. You're brave to open up again about your CP. Attitude truly is everything in all situations. Prayers for you, sweet Lady!

  4. Often it is hard to interpret comments because there are always misunderstandings. Someone can mean well, but say the wrong thing, or they can say something hurting unintentionally.

    It is hard to live with any illness and chronic illnesses are especially hard because there is no cure. Thank you for opening up about CP. I have Chron and sometimes it is a nightmare. We just need to keep fighting!


  5. Dear Regina, you can rest assured of my deepest admiration for your courageous statement. I wish you all the good of the world and that your life will proceed in a quiet way and that you will be able to face all the challenges that life will reserve for you.
