Poppy, age 15

I have had hemiplegia since I was born. I am very lucky because I have had an operation for my leg so now I walk OK.

It is not hemiplegia that is the problem; it is the problems hemiplegia makes. At first the kids at school were mean to me but that's ok, because I know that it's because they do not have hemiplegia and don't understand what it's like.

If you have hemiplegia remember this: no matter how you are, if you are believing in yourself you can still do it. Parents of people with hemiplegia remember: like Chloe I am not lazy, but weak. And last of all, join HemiHelp, they can make differences.
