Cerebral Palsy Misdiagnosed

I read this article yesterday and I am still gobsmacked about what happened to this woman!

She spent 30 years thinking she had Cerebral Palsy when she really had dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD), a rare muscle disorder that can be treated with one pill!!

She isn’t angry and doesn’t regret the surgery she had on her hips. My daughter had the same surgery when she was 2 years old and I remember the pain she went through and all I wanted to do was take it away for her. I am in awe of this woman, I know I would be angry and wanting to blame someone for the 30 years lost, but she doesn’t, she has no resentment or anger towards the doctor who made the mistake.
