#CPChatNow- 11-28-2018

This past week the #CPChatNow Cerebral Palsy Twitter chat was bumping as always.  Members talked about their holiday wish list, what they wanted to be when they grew up, and what they feel is the worst occupation for someone with CP.  This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap.

Not surprisingly, members’ holiday wish lists dominated the early conversation.  Members shared their gifts were becoming more practical as they aged.

Zach and Devin tweeted about holiday wish lists. Zach tweeted about a bright winter coat so people can see him and I shared I recently bought lights for my wheelchair

Next, members talked about what they wanted to be when they grew up as a kid.  There were definitely some amusing answers, but some also achieved their goal!

Zach tweets about wanting to be a Cleveland Indians player and then shifting his goal to becoming a writer. We talked about mourning not being able to play sports.

Zach and I had a common goal, playing baseball.  I had a little bit more lofty ambitions however, and Ayden would like to be the Leader of the Free World!

Ayden tweeted about wanting to become President

Zach asked about the occupations that members felt were the worst for people with CP. Dave shared some difficult positions he has had, a stagehand and line cook.

This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation question: What was your dream job when you were growing up and did CP require you to change it?  Please share your answer in the comments and join us at #CPChatNow on Twitter at 8 Eastern each Wednesday.
