I started my blog 7 years ago because I wanted to talk about my late Cerebral Palsy diagnosis, to understand my life and my experiences to that point. It was to be my first positive step for change and this is what the Diary does.
I also needed to find a place for my emotions coming into an initial diagnosis so late. When people started responding on my blogs and together with my replies, I began to see there was greater potential yet to come with my blogs and quickly discovered that my responses were also benefiting and helping others with what they had to deal with.
That mutual process is what’s at the heart of my website and I would love for that to continue to grow. Many more people read my blogs and that’s amazing, but sadly in times of emotional struggle there can be a lull with fewer and fewer responses.
We can all benefit so much from helping each other through talking about what we deal with. Let’s help one another by continuing to respond.
