What Am I All About?
I was born with cerebral palsy and live on my own. I was born in the United
States to Korean parents. Cerebral palsy is a
due to the lack of oxygen to the brain. I was born in the mid
70's. Do the math and you will figure out my age.
time, the doctors did not know much about my disability. They
basically told my family that I will be a vegetable and there was no
hope. Luckily, my family ignored others' comments and took me
home to become who I am now.
Due to my cerebral palsy, I am able to use my feet like they were my
hands. Like the character in My Left Foot.
I was able to use my feet at an early age and due to many
years of physical
therapy, I can type, open doors, pickup pennies on
the floor and all kinds of *things* with my feet.
There is nothing wrong with me. I have never learned how to
or use my hands, so I don't miss it. So, stop your pity
crap and let me be.
As you read on, my life might be better than your's. Just
I cannot walk, does not mean I don't have a life. So, open
minds and learn from others.
