The community known as the live cerebral palsy Twitter chat #CPChatNow enjoyed engaging conversation Wednesday, May 13th. We discussed various topics, starting with whether a correlation exists between cerebral palsy and high blood pressure.

May there be a connection between CP and high blood pressure?Another subject brought up dealt with asking for help and if that makes you feel defeated.

Do you feel asking for help is defeat?As you will notice the asking for help question led back to a discussion from last week, apologizing for your disability.

Moving on my co-host for #CPChatNow Blake Henry went to prom the past weekend. Inevitably the prom subject came to the forefront.
