I just read on this forum that people with CP who have had brain scans always show people with brain damage. I don't know how true this is, but I just read it on this forum. Of course that doesn't mean you are mentally disabled or challenged. It could be nothing or something slight (maybe bipolarity...I don't know). I'm just pointing out what I just read on this forum.
Hi. The brain damage resulting from cerebral palsy is vulnerable to the development of bipolar spectrum disorder, a version of bipolar disorder in which patients respond poorly to antidepressant medication treatment. Extreme mood swings are the most common symptom of bipolar spectrum disorder. Unfortunately, there is no cure for bipolar spectrum disorder. However, lifelong treatment can help people with the condition manage their emotions. To know more about bipolar spectrum disorders, consult your doctor. Thanks for asking.
