    Racing thoughts is just part of CP.So is depression. It has some thing to do with the part of the brain that was damaged causing the CP in the first place anxiety is part of it too. I think it has some thing to do with people not taking us seriously. We are easily dismissed because we have CP. Bugs the snot out of me! I tell ya! I had to go head to head with my doctor yesturday. I was quickly told I am the most pig headed woman he knew! I told him that is how I get my point a cross. The main thing is to keep trying I guess. Tell your friend that if his grand experiment doesn't work the worst thing that could happen is it would give him room in his jeans to go on a junk food binge! I lost 45 pds in 3 months getting of gluten. I am starting to turn around a little the problem is because of the muscle tenssion we use so much energy twice the average person. Chocolate is gluten free I live off it!!

    I was your basic junk food junkie!! I was raised on a lot of ethnic foods. Then I got out on my own and there was really nothing I wouldn't try at least once. Then I started getting sick and trying to keep up with life in general. The doctor told me for years that it was the simple fact that I have CP. When I landed in the hospital. It was a stoke of luck that my symtoms were that of an allergic reaction. So they ran a allergy panel and low and behold Iwas allergic to almost every thing I eat. Most meds and a whole list of medications. I didn't really know how to react. I told the doctor over and over some thing was wrong and I was right. People with CP or a disability in general tend to try and control what they can. Ask your friend if he/she? would feel much better if they could sleep though the night with out being blown out of bed with muscle spasms?! thank you for your thoughts Marie
  4. I though all this was because of my Cerebral Palsy. I wonder if it wasn't a combo hit on me now though.

My frends want me to go out drinking with them and then there is that dreded question?! Can you just have a little???? What part of NO dont you understand?? Sorry, frusterated. thanks for listening Marie
  6. Hi, I need some assistance here. I am gluten,dairy,soy and shrimp free after going through a long time of not feeling well at all and spending some time in the hospital from anaflaxia. I also have Cerebral Palsy. Which my alergies make that hard to deal with because my muscles react along with the allergic reaction. What can I eat?????
