#CPChatNow Recap- 3-8-2017

This week on #CPChatNow there were a variety of topics talked about as always.  The topics ranged from our co-host’s time in Spain on his study abroad trip to the difficulty of finding shoes.  This is your interim co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along on this week’s recap.  All aboard!

Unfortunately, our other co-host, Zach Fenell, missed his first chat since September of 2014 due to a power outage.

I also shared our regular co-host, Blake’s, blog from his study abroad trip in Spain.  The blog is worth checking out for the attempt at the wheelchair ramp alone!

Devin talking about Blake's blog on the ridiculous wheelchair ramp. Hannah saying it reminds her of escalators.

Next we talked about the common misperception people have that disability is something that needs to be fixed.  Hannah and Blemi agreed that the person with a disability has a right to decide whether they want to be fixed or not.

Hannah and I talked about ignorant comments others had made towards us including at a concert and when somebody blessed my legs.

Finally, many chimed in with a common problem people with CP face, finding stylish shoes.

  1. I’m going to answer the extend-the-conversation question a bit differently. Rather than “an everyday item which is hard to find because of CP” I’m going to mention an everyday item CP makes more complex, coffee! Especially when the coffee has no lid, I move like an 80-year old, slowly shuffling my steps to avoid spilling.
