I often wonder why I was born the way I am.
I was born three months early in 1992. I weighed less than 2lbs (907 grams) and, my mother claims I could fit inside a shoebox. I was in the hospital from September 1992-March 1993. (I was even baptized in the hospital). After I finally came home I was a mostly normal child except for my conditions. Because of my premature birth as well as other factors I'm guessing. I have cerebral palsy, and scoliosis. My cerebral palsy is relatively mild, it does not stop me from doing things others would do. The only indication that I have it would be my hand writing. (Which has more or less looked the same since I was 12.) I wore a brace on my leg up until I was 10. Besides doing stretches and going to a physical therapist for my tight heel cord. The doctors at one point decided to inject my leg muscle with Botox. Let me tell you that was the most intense pain I have ever experienced. Then I could barley walk afterwards. All in all as long as exercise my condition should not get any worse. Exercise is what I have been working on this summer. I used to always wonder (especially when I was little) what it would be like if I was normal. What if I didn't have any issues and was just the same as everyone else. Of course that take away some of things that make me who I am. Did anyone else every wonder about why they were born the way they are?
