How do you deal with CP?
Current message:
hey there...
aleisha zikowitz (sweetnaqt28@aol.com)
hey there, im not in the fifth grade anymore, but i do remember what it was like dealing with cp at that age. for i was just like you. i didnt know how to deal or what to think of it. somehow i managed. let me say i know it isnt easy. but i looked at cp not as a downfall but a challenge. i did not see myself as different, but special and i had this additude that i could do anything. remember that you may look different, but in actuallity you arent. you are just like everyone else, except you have to do things differently, show some of the kids what you can do that they cant. i bet they would think it to be cool. you may feel like your the only one out there like you, but you arent. its going to be hard. and if you need someone, though i am older (23 next week) i know the road you are going through and would be willing to help you out in any way. hang in there. and smile, like no one is watching. aleisha from va
