My name is tifarrah I'm 16 years old and when I was a baby I had the umbilical chord tied around my neck. I was okay but then later I don't remember much of it but I had sleep apnea. And I had surgery. After then when I turned 14 they diagnosed me with cerebral palsy and I went for physical and occupational therapy at that same time I went for several mris and was found to have something called syringomyelia which is a hole full of fluid in the spin. But the doctors it's to small to do surgery on now so they said I have cerebral palsy. Then when at that same time one night I was sent to the hospital because after a fight with my mom I found I was unable to move. A doctor at that time diagnosed me with a conversion disorder. Which is where when you react to stress your body reacts physically so you can't move your arms or your legs although there's no medical explanation behind it. I still deal with it today. Sometimes I'm in a wheelchair. Sometimes I have a neck brace and a walker. Although I have not even been able to use that recently I'v been to weak to use that.
