Hello I’m Cindy! I was born with Myelomeningocele Spina Bifida. I do not have Hydrocephalus , so I wasn’t in need of a shunt. My life despite having a disability has been AMAZING !
As a child my parents didn't treat me any differently than any other child . My parents always let me know to push forward with anything I wanted to do. So, for the most part I didn't feel like I missed out on things because of my being a paraplegic.
I got engaged very young and bought a house that needed to be modified to work for me. But unfortunately that relationship ended and I chose to keep my home and met someone new and we have been together ever since. If has been 18 years now.
My advice to others living with Spina of any other disability is to not look at your inability but see your ability and strive to be as independent as possible and that's always been my goal and I've achieved it. And I'm very blessed with My savior and Lord Jesus and he is my strength.
