my cerebral palsy

Postby jennifer18 » Fri Aug 01, 2008 1:03 pm

ok Where do I start at I was born with Cerebral Palsy, I weight 2pds 13, my mom got me on SSI for my disability and while I was in school (I was in resource class) and one day, the major lady that was over the resource classes told my dad or grandmother why they take me off of SSI (they shouldn't take me off the first place), well anyways I went to the social sercurity office to get me back on SSI (they are posting me as an adult) because I'm 19. I went to a medical doctor yesterday that was checking me for Cerebral Palsy he asked me what was CP and I told him Cerebral Palsy then he asked about whats wrong with it, I just told him that when it gets warm or cold (my hand will hurt), I sure can't keep my balance because I was about to fall on my face when I told me to walk my feet front of the another.....then when he got done checking me he told his nurse that he was calling the social sercurity.

I can't do alot of the things that I want too but I do them anyways.........I was raise around horses all my life, I was 8 years old my mom made a seat belt on my saddle because I don't have that good of balance

sorry for you. But don't be upset or dishearten. There are many people around, who have CP but they are quite fit to work and survive happily. There are various types of therapies available. Those therapies gives much balance and fitness. And medical science is growing vastly, i am sure after some years there will be permanent treatment solving CP.

medical malpractice lawyer new orleans

In Louisiana, there are special procedures which must be followed in medical malpractice cases. For example, in Louisiana, a claim must be filed with the State before a lawsuit can be filed. This claim is then reviewed by a panel of three Louisiana doctors, who give an opinion about whether any health care provider committed malpractice.Only after the panel has reached its decision can a lawsuit be filed. There are many complicated details to this Louisiana panel procedure, and many traps for the inexperienced Louisiana attorney
