This past week in #CPChatNow brought up varied topics as always. Members discussed issues with healthcare professionals, breaking in athletic shoes, and our Focus Chat next week on accessible gaming with AbleGamers! This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride.
A common theme this week was discussion of member’s distrust of healthcare professionals. Rachel expressed frustration that medical professionals do not want to discuss Cerebral Palsy, but they are happy to treat the symptoms of CP.
Rachel further expressed her frustrations with medical professionals predictions being wrong about her abilities.
Next, talk turned to stupid questions asked by doctors when Hannah chimed in with a stunning question from a doctor.
Zach also expressed frustration about breaking in his new athletic shoes. Rachel pointed out this has been issue for her, but she has gotten relief from inverts and a new masseuse.
Members discussed issues they experienced with extreme temperatures. Zach also shared he set a personal best in a 5K as he works towards completing a full marathon.
Finally, #CPChatNow is incredibly excited to announce that our next Focus Chat will be next Wednesday, August 9th, with the folks behind AbleGamers. AbleGamers is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit public charity that aims to improve the overall quality of life for those with disabilities through the power of video games. Craig also reached out to Rachel after she expressed frustration surrounding video games.
This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation Question and it ties in to next week’s Focus Chat: What are difficulties you have experienced surrounding CP and gaming? Please share your answers in the comments. Also, don’t forgot to join us for our Focus Chat next week!
