I just had one quick question for people with cerebral palsy who just entered true adulthood or remembered when they stopped being a rebellious teenager.
I know this may sound weird but when I was an adolescent, I used to believe that I could do everything independently, often leading to unhealthy habits such as leaving my body half dirty and washing only half my hair. I realized within the past two months that I need a lot more help than I thought. I need help with wiping and cleaning my body when I’m in the shower which are things I have not had help with in over two decades (I’m 24).
Even though I feel a LOT more healthier and happier after I get help, I also feel like I’ve lost some of my dignity. I was wondering if you ever get used to this or if the feeling of being healthy ultimately outweighs everything else? Thank you for reading this and I hope everyone stays safe.
