Week in and week out those in the cerebral palsy (CP) community gather on Twitter Wednesday night for the live Twitter chat #CPChatNow. Wednesday, June 8th, 2022 proved no different. To delve into the details, I am chat co-host Zachary Fenell. Come join me for your weekly recap.
One topic which seemed popular revolved around spasticity.
Spasticity arose as a subject when I asked participants if they felt like their spasticity increases when they feel like they are being watched. To clarify what I meant by the question, I recalled an example. Years ago while signing a waiver, my hand began shaking more than usual. Alessandro let me know I was not alone by enthusiastically replying, “Hell yes #cpchatnow.”
Meanwhile, Timmy stated his spasticity increases when he thinks about it. Chris offered additional insights noting she knows, “spasticity changes and is pretty sensitive to happenings.” Keep the conversation going and answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “What do you notice changes your CP’s spasticity levels?” Answer in the “Comments” section.
First though, allow me to finish recapping the discussion from June 8th, 2022. Besides spasticity, participants discussed their favorite social media platforms.
Curious, I asked participants to name their favorite social media platforms. Jen said her top two are Twitter and Instagram. Replying to Jen, I explained I find Twitter, “good for getting to meet people you don’t know yet.” Continuing, I complimented Facebook as, “good for keeping in touch with people you already know.”
Sentiments Chris agreed with, mentioning thanks to Twitter she has, “met cool people and learned all kinds of things.” The fondness for Twitter showed up elsewhere in the chat too.
Indirectly showing admiration for Twitter, Stephen expressed how much he loves everybody in the #CPChatNow community. Experience the community for yourself by joining us each and every Wednesday. The fun kicks off at 8pm ET.
In the meantime, remember to answer the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “What do you notice changes your CP’s spasticity levels?”
Until next time, remember. Don’t blend in. Blend out!
