I have a disability called cerebral palsy. I can walk for short distances with crutches. For long distance I use a manual wheelchair.
I was born 14 weeks premature and weighed only one pound and nine ounces. I was a mere 12 and a half inches long. I was given little t no hope of survival. In
fact, the doctors actually recommended to my parents to just let me die.
My parents were told that if I did survive, I would be blind, deaf, mute, never be able to do anything for myself, and basically be in a vegetative state with
no quality of life.
I have very low (almost non-existent) self esteem. I am a recovering self-injurer and have anorexic tendencies.
