Another Wednesday evening gone means time for another #CPChatNow recap. Remember the live cerebral palsy Twitter chat takes place every Wednesday at 8pm EST. This week saw a John W. Quinn sighting!
For those who just joined the #CPChatNow community over the last few months, John holds distinction as a #CPChatNow co-founder. John along with Handicap This Productions‘ Tim Wambach and I hosted the very first #CPChatNow discussion back in December 2013. I do highly recommend John’s book Someone Like Me: An Unlikely Story of Challenge and Triumph Over Cerebral Palsy.*
Additionally John put out a great Youtube video recently where he talks about how to handle people who laugh at your cerebral palsy.
In 2014 a busy schedule led John to step down from co-hosting #CPChatNow. Busy schedules also kept some #CPChatNow regulars from participating this week.
Still we enjoyed a thriving conversation. Blemi peaked interests when she brought up a new spasticity clinic.
I asked about people’s choices in devices when participating in #CPChatNow.
Those final comments from Ann deserve repeating.
“I don’t ask people to not see my disability after meeting me, rather I hope they see my interests & personality.”
We live with cerebral palsy but we do not need to define ourselves by that. Moving forward I think I will include an extend the conversation question at each recap’s end. To start, from your interests, which stands out the most? Leave a comment!
