Communal vibes emanated from the weekly cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow Wednesday, February 16th, 2022. Here to tell you more, I am chat co-host Zachary Fenell. Let us get to recapping!
Admittedly, I am a bit hesitant in compiling this recap. My hesitancy rooted in concerns I will come across too self-promotional. As you might know, I had remained hard at work on a new book over the last two years. Well, on Wednesday, February 16th I revealed my upcoming book’s cover and title.
I first posted the reveal in #CPChatNow to show my gratitude for all the support the community has given me throughout the process. Count on me to continue to provide updates as Slow and Cerebral nears release (most likely late March).
Elsewhere in the chat, I also supplied an update on a long-time community member.
Hannah asked me to share some bad news regarding her health. Those in our community rallied around Hannah and sent well wishes her way. Personally, I noticed a parallel between us rallying around Hannah and celebrating Slow and Cerebral‘s reveal.
Essentially, I compared the night’s chat to a roller coaster. Commenting that amidst the highs and lows, one constant remained. Community!
Throughout the ride, we enjoyed other lively discussion. Stephen, an enthusiastic chat participant, helped spark this dialogue.
Stephen asked the group what is one thing they like about CP. I answered saying CP has acted as a filter, letting me know what friends I can count on. Overall though, responses varied.
My co-host Devin Axtman credited CP for making him more adaptable and less upset by setbacks. Meanwhile Jessica replied, saying CP has helped her to show empathy and compassion to others. What about you? Keep the conversation going and answer as the extend-the-conversation question, “What do you like about cerebral palsy?”
Answer in the “Comments.” Afterwards, set a reminder to join us each and every Wednesday on Twitter. The fun begins at 8pm ET.
Until then, remember. Don’t blend in. Blend out!
