This is a positive quote to keep in mind.

A strong quote to think

This is seriously an amazing quote to stay positive. It doesn't matter what age or anything you are.

Definitely something to think

This is something that everyone can do no matter if you are disabled or not.

Think about it

This is something to inspire to daily

Moving forward with Cp

Image
Ok so you have a child with Cp: Or you are a young person with the condition. There will be lots of people who are older than you. These people have the best intention in the world and yet get things wrong particularly about your condition. These people may be members of your family but don’t understand the condition. They may think they don’t. You must realise this. Comments they make: Close your legs. Come on hurry up! You can do better than that! Pick your feet up. Stand still. These are just some of the ones I have encountered growing up. Even now decades later these confuse me. You may wonder why I say that. You’ll see. Growing up and feeling out of place! Whether you are a single child/part of a bigger family that you live with. You are a member of the family who is reading this with another member with cerebral palsy. Take in mind what is said as it does not matter what people say. There is always a sense of being out of place because we are not classed as normal. There are sign

What does 2022 have for me?

Image
What I think it has? I think the new year has a lot of good things happening. Not everything is going to be what I wanted it to be. That's ok though just the same as 2021.  There, as I said, have been lots of changes in the way things are regarding my disability. I think that the changes will be positive for the future to a certain degree. I'm hoping to have the final place, but it may not happen. We'll see. That's ok though because there is always going to be positive and negative. No matter what. What do I want from 2022 ? All I want is a way of being able to be safe and yet not stressed out too much. I know that this is going to be a difficult year ahead with the way that my family is going to have a head regarding their own situation such as GCSEs and a new place. We don't know what could actually be happening. We just have to take it month by month.  So that means that we have to think about what is going on each month and make a small p

Three weeks with Herbalife. My take on the big Health Lifestyle Company

Image
What is Herbalife? Herbalife is a lifestyle system that was started in 1980 and has health supplements ranging from protein shakes, vitamin supplements, bars and more. It has a big following and sponsors various sports teams and individuals such as La Galaxy, Cristiano Ronaldo, and the Israel Olympic Committee just to name a few.  It is a multi-level networking company that is introduced to members by other members by talking about the benefits of the supplements etc. Then getting people to be representatives for the company and introducing more people to the products and lifestyle.  There are lots of companies that do this, such as Forever Living, Juice Plus, Younique, Fredric Mohra (FM World).  I am not here to diss the way the companies are run as I have tried many of them as a distributor and found that way of work is just not for me.  However, as a person who is very conscious of what I should eat because of the way my weight also affects my joints and what agility I have left bec

So the year has nearly finished! What a crazy one.

Image
Oh my goodness what a crazy year this has been. A quarter of which has been in yet another lockdown because of the pandemic. If you didn’t know about it, where have you been? This year has been a year of almost normality yet not! There have been things that have been shut, new rules to follow set by the government. Then more changes as some of the rules were reversed. And as I write more things are happening.  In the sense that other countries are opening up for us to travel to but not everywhere. What has this year given me? This year has given me a real sense of change in myself. Yes, I have cerebral palsy but the fact I moved house at the end of 2020. That was a big change in its self after 23 years in the same place. It was a positive move although there were challenges. What hasn't this year given me? The biggest thing is that it hasn't allowed me to get the dream home the way I wanted but that's ok. There are more changes ahead but they are for the future of me and m

Ok so what now! Questions to ponder as a future is uncertain

Image
  I have been quiet for a long time, and things have been a bit of a stretch. I have been thinking during this period that I should be reversing a few of the ideas that I had for this outlet. I am here to give an idea of what life is like with the condition. Everyone assumes that everyone wants to have their place that is their castle. Yes, that is the case to a certain extent but when living with a condition such as cerebral palsy life gives you curve balls constantly. Certain things can be a trigger an overload of anxiety and panic. that cause a circle of stress and anxiety. These include house maintenance in any form, bills that are not anticipated and accidents. For me, it was the uncertainty of what the future holds for me as a person who has cerebral palsy. Doing any amount of exercise or general existence can cause wear and tear on the body meaning that there is no certainty of what is going to happen in the future. As I have mentioned, in other posts the condition wears the bod

Knowing when Change is coming

  How are you dealing with the world right now? This has been one of the most hideous years ever for almost everyone in the world. The worst I can think of was a century ago when the Spanish flu killed 50 million people worldwide. Now the world has changed because of this new virus. The number of changes that have altered the environment and social actions of people because of Covid19. Everyone is struggling in some way some are even rebelling. These situations are scary for everyone understandably but we need to stand together. It will get easier with time and resources but these again will take time to find a vaccine or cure How are you dealing with the situation at home or work? There has been some kind of stagnation, which in a way has been a good thing. It has made people breathe and realise what is important both emotionally and physically. Yet others just don't care or don't believe what is going. Because they think it's a hoax but it's not. It is ok you a

The crazy future! Coming in the near future

  This is what's going on at the moment. The COVID19 situation has changed here in the UK, and lots and lots of people have had their injections, whether they're, it's their first or their second one. I've had my second job yesterday because cerebral palsy is one of the neurological problems that COVID19 can affect, you, whether it be long term or short term. We've had to be inside for so long, and this week. I'm recording this, They are opening up all the shops that were not opened for over a year now, and it's going to be a strange, strange sensation. When I go back out tomorrow. Because of an appointment, I will go straight down to town and straight back. But going will be one of those things where I think, okay, great idea. but, you know, I'm thinking for everybody, particularly people with neurological, breathing problems, asthma or whatever. Masks are to be worn outside, and it shouldn't matter. I understand the freedom of seeing people and eve
