Born A Fighter

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Bryony M

Welcome to the World

My name is Bryony and I am 19 years old. I was abandoned at birth. When I was taken to the hospital, doctors discovered I had blood poisoning. At 3 months old I was adopted and I now have the most amazing parents I could ever had wish for.

Starting Education

In year 2 my teacher noticed I was having more difficulties in class compared to the other children. After many hospital visits my parents were told I had Cerebral Palsy. 

Later on in primary school I got bullied and this carried on in lots of different ways through secondary school and got a lot worse.

Light at the end of the tunnel?

At 14 years old I started having mental health problems and seeing CAHS. The bullying I had experienced was so bad I was diagnosed with PTSD as well as other conditions like anxiety, depression, hearing and seeing things. I also have dissociative seizures. I was suicidal and spent a couple of weeks in a mental health unit. I still have mental health problems, but my family and close friends are very helpful.
