Hi,

I am a 17 year old girl, with cerebral palsy, I struggle to cope with my condition because not does it affect my legs but it also affect my speech and arms. However, my legs are probably my worst offender. I hate my life I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get a job.

I ****ing hate the subjects that I’m currently studying at college, but I have to do it.

I wanted to write to someone about this such as someone in charge of educational matters, but I don’t know who.

Have you checked what services your college offers for your condition?

If so and they don't have anything to help you, I'd contact the head of the college and see if they're willing to implement a solution. You could also write to your local MP as well.

As for jobs, don't worry about jobs right now. Trust me, once you finish college and go university you'll see there's lots of opportunities for everyone, including you.

Hope this helped, good luck!
