This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation Question: What would you do if you didn’t have CP?
On Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022 participants in the cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow enjoyed an important conversation. Join me, chat co-host Zachary Fenell, as I do my best to recap the discussion. Shall we get started?
Veronica chimed in saying she gets the early aging part of the article. Adding humidity makes her arthritis act up. Although, Veronica expressed uncertainty about whether her CP has anything to do with her arthritis and osteoporosis seeing how those conditions run in her family.
Chris responded, saying arthritis and osteoporosis also run in her family. She went on, curious if any of us were told growing up about bone issues and CP. My co-host Devin Axtman weighed in with his experiences.
Devin summarized his experiences saying, “I feel like I was basically told of no problems I would have as an adult with CP.” Continuing he described the attitude from medical professionals as “Just like ‘WELP we did all the regular surgeries. Good luck!'”
A sentiment which resonated with Chris. She stated “This was a big reason why I brought this up.” Challenging everyone to “Be aware. Do your research, ask questions, take calcium!” Chris then offered a follow-up the next day.
In her follow-up tweet Chris shared an article from cpresource.org about “Preventive Care for Adults with Cerebral Palsy.” Let us keep the preventive care discussion going. Answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “What is something you do for preventive care?” Answer below in the “Comments.”
Afterwards, mark your calendars for #CPChatNow each and every Wednesday. The fun begins at 8pm ET.
