How Cerebral Palsy Can Change the world
Hello, my name is Enrique Andreu. I am Spanish and I am 23 years old. Twenty-three years ago, I was born with Cerebral Palsy due to a failure of the doctor and the midwife who did not realize that I was drowning inside my mother. Thanks to an x-ray, the doctor realized that the fetus had two loops of umbilical cords around the neck and another loop around the shoulder strap. This is when the doctor decided to make a wound to my mom, which saved my life. Cerebral Palsy caused brain injury and hemiparesis on the right side of the body. I overcame everything the doctors told to my family and also thanks to the support of my family. I am also deaf in my right ear, my otorrino doesn't know if my total deafness of the right ear is due to Cerebral Palsy, or when I was 7 years old and it seemed that hearing could also be lost due to the virus. When I lostmy hearing in my right ear, I regained my sight without using glasses. I can see very well without glasses- I have perfect eyesight more more or less.
With hard work and sacrifice, you can get the things that you want. Wanting is power I wish I had been born without Cerebral Palsy, because that way I would have been more intelligent and I wouldn't have had any physical problems. On the other hand, I think I would have become a bad person. I would not have empathy and I would not respect people with disabilities. I want to give my support, affection and love to all people with disabilities, and it does not matter what type it is. The society that surrounds me behaves very well with me, and they respect me for what I am as a person. I am proud of the person I am and of all that I have been doing. I would love that the society that surrounds me respects me, that society in general continues to respect other people, be they men or women, disabled or not, etc. If I could change the world, I'm sure we can change the world together again.
