Hi everyone,
i found this website when looking for information about hemiparesis, I'm 20 years old and have hemiparesis. When i was little there wasn't much support for my parents and felt I wanted to join to support other people coping with similar conditions. i am very much independent individual as my parents have always supported and taught me to do the best i can, i am currently studying a degree in social work I have driven for two years and overcome any barriers i have had to face with hemi paresis so if anyone needs any support what so ever i'll do the best i can.

Hi Stephh,

Welcome to the board! I'm Kathryn 26 with left Hemi.

You may like to post your message in the Post 18 section also, you'll find us a friendly bunch! :)

Great to hear that your parents supported you to be independant and get on with things, mine did too. It's the way forward!

Speak soon,

Kathryn

hi there
my little girl Hope almost 3 has right hemiplegia
after an appointment with her paed i recieved the ususal letter you get.
it said in one paragraph about her hemiplegia
but in the last paragraph it said that Hope was showing all the usual signs of hemiparesis
i worried for months till my next appointment thinking that she had something else as well
but when i asked him he said never to worry always ask
he explained that they are basically the same thing
except that one is latin and one is greek
and that he was probably showing off whilst dictating the letter.
anyway welcome to the boards.
