Another Abby post:
It's Abby again. This post is going to be more about kicking RS's butt. There are many ways medically but mentally is also important. My friend has something similar and we sometimes talk about, what will we do when people make fun of us. Well, they don't know that even though we are not the same as others we are kicking our disability's butt. You need to know, you will have bad balance and you will need to roll your head. If you've done it for 9 3/4's years you forget about rolling your head. But balance can be hard because you're just the way you are, but that doesn't mean you aren't doing good. For me, getting across the balance beam without falling is awesome and it also mean I am doing well. Most kids would be pulling there hair out if they couldn't make it across a balance beam but for me it's really great.
But also, you need determination. You need to be yourself no matter what. If it means rolling your head and having not the best balance then it's completely fine just remember that you are kicking RS's butt.
