#CPChatNow Recap- 2/26/2020

This past week in #CPChatNow was interesting as always. We had members with big life changes, discussions of things members didn’t like but grew used to, and a robust discussion of the effectiveness of awareness months. This is #CPChatNow co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

I would like to take a moment to congratulate Chris for accomplishing a long term goal and obtaining her certification as a substitute teacher:

Zach asked about something that members did not like, but grew used to. Chris mentioned that she did not like Physical Therapy (PT), but grew used to it.

zach asked about something members grew used to, but did not like. chris mentioned pt, zach said that he did not like or dislike pt, pt was a necessity to him

Finally, there was considerable discussion about March being Cerebral Palsy awareness month and the effectiveness of awareness months in general.

zach and beau discussed the effectiveness of cp awareness month, beau asked why people can't do things year round, i stated often people plan for the sake of planning. beau tweeted about awareness fatigue and zach tweeted about raising awareness being an empty buzzword and advocating feels more fitting

This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation question: What was a necessary evil when it came to your CP?

Thank you for reading and please join us on Twitter each Wednesday at 8 eastern at #CPChatNow
