As you can probably tell, I’m Cat and I have Hemiplegia (on the left side of my body to be precise).
Hemiplegia affects either the left or right side of a person’s body (limbs, muscles etc.) hence the word ‘hemi’, which is Greek for half. As I have had ‘hemi’ from birth, it is known as a form of Cerebral Palsy.
I’ve just finished my A-levels, and plan to study Law after taking a year off for respite and surgery purposes. So during this year (and hopefully during University) I can document my life, with a few rants along the way…
Thanks for reading!
