A disability not obvious

It’s impossible to navigate a disability where it’s not obvious and you don’t come across as particularly disabled, but you still have mental and emotional struggles you deal with that aren’t always obvious to the outside world. It would be easy for others to be confused.

But my blogs and book tell a different story as I highlight my mental and emotional struggles for the first time. As a small child, I felt like a freak, because my disability wasn’t obvious and because I didn’t fit into …

Autism, a social awkwardness

The social awkwardness of autism is the most difficult to deal with. I have never really thought about how I present.

Growing up, I thought my physical disability was responsible for everything. I didn’t know autism was responsible for my mental and emotional disabilities. Although I have mild autism and I’m not high functioning …

Being mindful of your actions

Being mindful isn’t just about being alerted to something and then being mindful of your actions. It’s about paying attention to your environment and your lives presently.

It’s also not something we will all have in our lifetime, that part is always up to us. But being mindful is something you must hone, and something that can have a positive impact on both your personal …
