These days, even going to the dentist is easier. Yes, I can physically drive myself there, but the simple fact that I can brush and floss my teeth like other people make sitting in the dental chair that much easier.
Growing up, I dreaded dental appointments. No matter how many times a day I brushed my teeth, I almost always had a cavity. The hygenist would spend what seemed like forever scraping the plaque off my teeth. I would tense up and my hands would ball up from the stress. To say I dreaded these cleanings would be an understatement!
These days I don't look forward going to the dentist, but I rejoice in knowing that my appointments don't take any longer than that of a "normal" person. I feel so lucky that I can take care of my teeth and gums on a daily basis with ease. It's something that I never thought I'd be able to say and it feels GREAT!.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
