#CPChatNow Recap- 08-24-2016

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 we at #CPChatNow waded into the thought pool’s deep end. I am co-host Zachary Fenell, ready to recap what turned into a very insightful chat. By post end you may think about cerebral palsy in new ways!

Oddly enough though, the conversation started off slow. Personally, regular Devin set my night off to a nice start.

Zachary blogs about life with cerebral palsy at http://zacharyfenell.comFor your reading pleasure I will add a link here, “You Belong! No Matter Your Cerebral Palsy.” If you enjoy the read, check out my other posts, and even subscribe!

Anyways I should stop self-promoting and refocus on recapping the August 24th chat. Discussion about success began the wading into the metaphorical thought pool’s deep end.

What makes someone successful?Dialogue continued on what makes someone successful and also life’s priorities. A late comer soon turned the chatter more cerebral palsy specific.

The #CPChatNow community discusses "Is it weird not to feel whole?"Shira‘s question sparked concern from regular Jen.

Shira explains why she asked her question.I tried attributing Shira’s feelings in-part to her age. However, additional factors became increasingly evident.

Some participants wonder how cerebral palsy changed them physically.Other participants’ responses on the matter fueled my gender theory.

More #CPChatNow participants visualize how life was "supposed" to be.Shall we keep exploring the issue at hand? Answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question “Do you ever visualize how life was ‘supposed’ to be?” Respond via a comment in the “Comments” section.

Before wrapping up I wish to revisit a point captured in an above screen shot. Participants expressed how #CPChatNow reduced feeling lonely. That speaks to a support system’s importance, something emphasized again later in the night.

#CPChatNow discusses the importance of having a good support network.We at #CPChatNow can assist passing the time required to build a good in-person support network.

Let #CPChatNow be your support network!Obviously participating in the weekly cerebral palsy Twitter chat supplies the best way to utilize our support network. Still my co-host Blake Henry and I know not everyone tweets. Hence we work hard to provide other platforms for community contribution.

First and foremost like our Facebook fan page. The page shares cerebral palsy related stories daily. Like and leave comments on the posted items.

Answer this week's extend-the-conversation question! Do you ever visualize how life was "supposed" to be?Then too exists opportunity within the extend-the-conversation question. Remember today’s question asks “Do you ever visualize how life was ‘supposed’ to be?”
