Is anyone have same issue?

Hello I am 39 year old woman who has mild cp on my right leg and arm.
My right leg is shorter and smaller than left.
I can't bend my ankle fully and I don't have good balance when people look at me walking.
My toes don't move well. Especially big toe. Doctors don't know how to treat this.
Someone who don't have cp they don't understand us.
I would like to share our struggle feeling with who know a lot.

As a woman I would like to dress up with short dress but people notice differences between both legs.
People made fun of me when I was younger so I still have bad feeling to show my leg to other.
Is anyone have same problem?
Is there any good solution for this?
Can we make look even with surgery?

Please share with your thought.
Thank you for reading.

Hi, I know some of how you feel my left knee turns in so I find it really hard to wear certain clothes as I feel so self conscious all the time, it drives my Husband mad but I don't think he understands how the teasing and Micky taking of other ignorant people has affected me over the years.  Happy to talk if you want to.  I'm new to this so I'm unsure how to get people to talk with me.
