Sometimes Cerebral Palsy Means Flying Macaroni

Filed under: Living with a disability — by at 12:44 am on Tuesday, November 16, 2010

With my kind of cerebral palsy – athetoid cerebral palsy – I often have involuntary movements. A hand, an arm or a leg does something totally unexpected…and there’s nothing I can do about it!

Last night I had one of those movements that Darrell and I call cp moments. Usually, when I am mixing up something, I place the bowl in the sink, which makes the bowl easier to hold still and any overages can easily be rinsed down the sink. Well, the bowl was too heavy…or the sink was cluttered…or I was in a hurry…or distracted…or something…and the bowl was not placed in the sink.

Macaroni, peas and sauce splattered on the kitchen floor After several stirs of the bowl’s contents, my hand went down too hard, too fast; the spoon hit the side and macaroni, peas and sauce went flying! Everywhere. The counter, the floor, my shoe.

Life with cp is never routine.

Excuse while I go clean up the floor, yet again…
