The CP Diary is my journey of self-discovery and the belief I have in myself. I continue to draw confidence as I continue to write.
Although my blogs reinforce my own struggle through my experiences, they may also bring a different thought process for others depending on what they deal with and how they cope. Whether conscious or unconscious, my blogs may also be a trigger for a response for those with issues and what they get to deal with.
One hugely positive aspect of my blog is that it’s easy for others to resonate with my experiences, although there is a possibility my blogs may act as a trigger, which might throw us into denial on what we deal with. On another level, my blogs may also open new doors on our issues, through the message on each blog and that can bring about new understanding and how we get to deal with things.
My blog also continues to help me through extensive research on my Cerebral Palsy issues, taken from the information I already have from my Neurologist and that helps me address my triggers. As I get to understand more of my symptoms that additional understanding then forms part of any new blog. Through research I now know what my symptoms are. They were always there, a part of me.
It’s true that any blog we read can sometimes act as a trigger and in that case. When we’re triggered, it would be easy to have and form opinions on what others deal with and what we deal with. Anything that I write about empowers me and helps to change my thinking, not act as a trigger.
I believe triggers will always become triggers if we choose them to be.
