If I were to describe myself in person first language, I would say, "Byran, a young man with Cerebral Palsy" rather than, "Cerebral Palsy victim, Bryan." Another important brief example is to use the phrase "wheelchair user" instead of "wheelchair-bound." I am not bound to anything, nor do I suffer from.
Australia is an English-speaking country -- but, like with England, there are a lot of differences between here and there. So many, in fact, that if you hang with the locals at a pub in the outback, you won't be totally off base if you sit for a second and wonder, "Just where the hell am I, anyway?"
