Laci's found for medical treatment
Organized by: Nagy Laci
My name is László Nagy. I was born in 1974 with Athetosis cerebralparesis, a disease that greatly limits my movement and speech. I completed elementary school in a small southern Hungarian town, called Bácsbokod. So far, I have only received professional medical assistance once, at the Pető Institute of Conductive education in Kiskunhalas. There I was taught how to eat and get dressed alone, and how to take care of my basic daily needs without assistance. I live with my mother. Friends and relatives often visit me to keep me company, I am for sure grateful for all their unselfish care! My disability doesn’t grant me the freedom to travel or to see the world, so the only thing I can do for recreation is to go into town in my wheelchair once in a while. Things have been quite tough for my mother and I, we’ve always had to struggle. In fact I only recently got to know the exciting world of the internet and what it can offer, and I’m already 40 years old. Now, with the help of the internet, I can finally watch movies and listen to my favorite music. As a matter of fact, I have always loved music and used to collect records and cd’s devotedly. And last but not least, I use the internet: to get to know new friends. I am extremely positive about the help and assistance the internet can offer. By using this blog, I would like to let people know about my illness, and the trials and tribulations of my everyday life. I want to get to know people with similar challenges and disabilities to form a group, so as to working together towards finding solutions to make our daily lives more pleasant and livable, and eventually create a foundation to help others like me.
