In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
I understand how you feel, people that don't live with CP don't have a clue. Not to wish bad on anyone....BUT there will come a day when these comments will come back to bite them in the butt. I have heard many comments similar to what you posted, I was so devastated at the time, I couldn't think of a reply. Now when a comment is made I repeat it back to them, so you think I should exercise a little more to stop the neck pain...hmmm I didn't think of that, thanks for your advise. It really sounds stupid when you say it back to them. Oh, so the leg numbness can be fixed by losing weight, gee I'll ask my Dr. he hasn't mentioned that as a cure for nerve damage. I don't do it sarcastically, just matter of fact.
Sometimes I picture myself slapping them silly or as they walk away do an imaginary finger and not with the index finger...lol.
Hope all our replies help you feel better!
