Tomorrow is another day

Today’s blog is a means for me to let off steam. I am trying to work out how I feel. Some days I seem to struggle to make sense of where I am and other days I feel as though I am somehow in denial.

Those are the days I manage not to think about the issues going on. Then I come back to reality on the assault. I am tired of us having to fight our way through the day with little resolve at the end of it …

Understanding our perceptions

We need to understand how our perceptions work if we are to change our behaviour. Perceptions act as a filter based on our experiences and are then used to interpret our thoughts on what we see, hear and feel through our conscious thinking.

Our perceptions will always have an impact on our values, feelings and beliefs and that as we continue to subject ourselves to the different emotional and psychological elements that change how …

Fruitless Exercises

My last two blogs on Dyspraxia have taken my thoughts back to my childhood this morning and the one thing that sticks out in my mind is my exercise routine and how fruitless they were.

It wasn’t even the exercises I was mad at, or being singled out to do them. I was frustrated at the fact that neither of my parents wanted to know or if they did know I didn’t know what was wrong …

More about Dyspraxia

I believe having brain damage together with a family history has contributed to my problems with Dyspraxia and up until recently have only found out that certain members of my extended family have difficulties between left and right and other issues.

I explained briefly in my last blog ‘CP and Dyspraxia,’ which is what I believe I have; but certain elements of what I struggle with someone else may not. For example I may struggle with tying shoe …

CP & Dyspraxia

The CP Diary has been a good motivator for me. It has allowed me to understand and equate my life up to this point and hopefully will go beyond that. This week I perhaps have now come face to face with another reality, for which my past struggles seem to fit.

As a consequence of brain damage, there is a possibility that I may also have a mild form of Dyspraxia. Having done hours of my own research, I have found that children with Cerebral Palsy …

Time to grow

Depending on our childhood, each of us as an individual will grow differently. As a child, I didn’t have a chance to emotionally grow because I was never encouraged to make decisions. They were always being made for me.

Although I was able to hold down a job from the age of 18, I didn’t feel ready to ‘take on the world.’ It was only when I moved on with my life at the age of 25 that things slowly began to change for me. It was like …
