In 2009 of July changed my life forever. I was just healing from a hemoglobin in my brain which was very painful. I was finally up and about and I noticed there was numbness on my right arm and leg and pain. I was panicking thinking I had a stroke went to the doctors and she diagnosed me with CPS. she looked at my X-rays and said I had brain damage also in my cerebellum. Things have changed drastically but it’s something I have accepted and learned to deal with this. I’m learning day by day what I can do and what I can’t. My brain damage is something I can’t help for example I have trouble thinking about what I’m about to say. Very forgetful, and my mind goes blank a lot of times. I am trying not to let this get me down. It’s very hard but I say to anybody that has CPS hang in there and I know it’s hard but don’t let this bring you down. It could be way worse.
