I have been brought closer to my disability with Covid19, more than I ever imagined. I also never could have imagined my life would go like this around my disability. With 20+ weeks shielding now behind me, I am still choosing to stay home.
With a virus I can’t see and dealing with, cerebral palsy and respiratory disease means I am high risk for Covid_19 and that is something I have to deal with every day. It is scary and I need to make peace with it.
Through my writing, I have been able to give my disability a voice and myself new opportunities. Being able to write has opened up a whole new world. Although I have worked hard to make my blog happen, I now struggle to get my head around my disability and Covid_19.
Where Covid_19 continues to highlight my mental weaknesses, my diary brings mental strength and hope, where I continue to struggle.
