The enormity of how I got to this place is clear from 8 years of writing blogs, particularly around a non-diagnosis, neurological symptoms and anxiety I didn’t know I had. They all point to what I know now.
My experiences have become a learning curve, no question there. But the flip side is that although I never made any of the connections as a child, I have the ability to write and work things out through my writing. My writing has become immeasurable for me to understand my life up to this point, finally.
I am coming to the end of knowing everything about my disability. ASD is the last piece to the jigsaw and that now has been confirmed. That without my website, I could never have understood my life in detail around what I was made to deal with. My website has given me the opportunity to raise my awareness, self-esteem and confidence.
Mum telling me ‘it was a difficult birth’ has paved the way for me to find out about my disability, about me. My mum is very much instrumental in my website, for the start of my cerebral palsy journey and more. Thanks mum.
Now to the rest of my writing… there will be more.
