Greetings my name is Destiny. I am sixteen, your typical teenage girl accept for one thing I happen to have Cerebral Palsy, and for some reason people tend to think that makes me slow or dense in someway. I am physically slow yes. I have issues with my walking, balance and cordination, I wear orthodics, braces on my legs, and I go to physical therapy three times a week, but I am doing well.
I do not like being unfairly judged because I happen to have Cerebral Palsy, even when they see I am an honors students, who has high marks in her classes, they acted like I just performed a miracle instead of simply working hard.
I decided to write about this, because I wanted others to see that my life despite having Cerebral Palsy is normal, I do the same thing other sixteen year olds do, and in a few months I will be getting my license.
I have my crushes, and I have my dreams. When the school year begins I will be a Senior. You see I have even skipped a grade, and people still tend to think of me as that poor girl with Cerebral Palsy. I get so tired of other peoples pity parties when I do not feel sorry for myself. I do not need anyone pitying me, because I am happy with what God has given me, and I wish others could see that.
To Be Continued
